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.
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.
ah ah!! ah well always use 2 bother me,, 2 make sure i get the work done and understood the methods he taught us! go on class 101
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!!!!!
Had him for maths back in the 80's. Did the crossword a lot. Always looked a bit red in the face from the night before. Has this changed!? Perhaps hes improved.
Underneath a caring and gentle man, who ignored the book and taught from basic to complex so we understood
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
