Lived his job and gave everything. Went a little too far sometimes with discipline to the point were he could not teach. For example, he would be explaining something and somebody would so much as coughed too loud and he would stop everything. All the same it's a hard balancing act in a boys school. Also found it a little hard to ask Questions in his class. But all and all, thought he was a good professional who cared and had the students interest at heart.
O and one other thing doyle ,when entering the staff room and attempting to speak, stop spitting ,I pity the unfortunate students and your attempted humour is not remotely funny you incredible buffoo
yes indeed, doyle I only like soccer and big money not running around a mucky wet field and ending up in broke up or in a wheelchair for what some great gain never realised
this guy could not teach even if he was cencored too busy in talking about rugby instead of doing what he was paid to do ahem TEACH also he can,t teach because he never worked in the private sector
Tried hard but couldn't keep up with the class. All right.... OK
A bit of an underrated teacher I think. Only appreciated how much I learnt from him when I moved to Hilary Dorgan's class.
great craic in his class. .roaring coming down the corridors "TOG OUT TOG OUT" which meant take your jackets off before you went into class. His wife used to be walking around full of chalk stains too
All right OK. I'm speechless. Seemed to be a nice guy underneath the tough exterior.
An out and out bully. My maths took a divebomb in his class, and recovered when I left. Very academically skilled, but had absolutely no people skills. Great comic relief though, clumsy man.
let me just scratch myself somewhere with chalk on my hands. ahh the stuff you remember. Gooe teacher, got me into college - successful career
very ennoying and always takeing money out of his pockets and putting it in his wallet
Always very disorganized. Had a sloppy teaching method that worked for some students, but I found him frustratingas he wasted a lot of time.
if shouting at people was an olympic event, and hopefully someday it will be, billy would be the world champion
Never had a duster, nice man but didn't really learn anything from him except where minus infinity was!
My kind of teacher - wrote everything on the blackboard. very clear and very good.
knew his stuff though strange teaching method,old school is the term i think,also lost his glasses on his head a bit
Great bloke but rambled alot. You were grand with Billy if you played rugby
incidentially there gentlemen??? got me through my leavin, new the maths book in and out. this man will be loss when he retires this year. LEGEND!!!!!
Underneath a caring and gentle man, who ignored the book and taught from basic to complex so we understood
A strange style of teaching but not bad. Talked about The 4th Dimension, Snow, and Windows a lot!
Believes that you learn mathematics by studitying and then solving problems, then solving more problems! Finding your own way to solve problems was encouraged.
At the time Mr Doyle was a monster,I hated going to his class,he was v strict, however looking back he was a great man,who got me through leaving cert maths
Bill forgot were he left his glasses from time to time. Good Railway men always turn out to be good coaches, well done
