A Demi god. Simple
Absolute Legend. Will be remembered by thousands of students with affection and gratitude. Amazing man. Clonkeen wont see his likes again. Pity he couldnt be frozen in time so more generations get the opportunity to be schooled by him.
A remarkable man. Without his influence I would not have done honours level maths. An outstanding teacher and human being. It is 29yrs since he taught me and I still feel his influence to this day.
greatest man to enter clonkeen
Br. Kelly was one of the best teachers i ever had, his words are still with me after 25 years later. One of the great teachers at Clonkeen.
I did pass maths for my inter cert and was strongly advised not to attempt honours maths for the leaving. He pushed me to excel in ways no other teacher had before. I'm no genius but I passed hon maths. His energy and enthusiasm was infectious.
My favorite teacher I have ever had, never missed a day of class, been unfair or in a bad mood. I will always respect him for that and I honestly don't think I will forget him. Classes are fun yet informative. Amazing teacher.
he is just a straight up boss its the only way to describe him
A fantastic enigma of a human being. More life experience and genuine passion for teaching young people than any other person I've ever encountered. A gem of a man.
A great man in every way - was so lucky to have had his help for 5 years in Clonkeen on the pitches and in the classrooms what a star!
Recently played golf and Br.Kelly was on the tee box behind us, one of the lads got a birdie and the Bro shouted 'Up Wexford' The Hulk Hogan of Clonkeen. so revered a website was named after him
Absolute legend most saintliest man in the school dedicates every minute of the class to students
This man is a hero... oh and he can teach the whole Honours JC course in under 2 hours...
he is and was the only man at clonkeen who could teach irish. a lovely lovely man in every sense of the word far better than any other irish teacher that may have been at the school long ago
I have never had him as a teacher but everytime I see him we have a chat, he cares about more than just getting through a class.
This guy gave his life to teaching no matter what the subject he would have a go. Fantastic. Taught me humility.John Glennon - 1985
this guy is great,the best teachers i ever had.....no wait the BEST.............
His passion and enthusiasm was infectious. He taught me Biology and Irish and these were the classes I looked forward to most.
The best teacher EVER, he'll make you learn and you'll like it.
A class act, the antithesis of Jim Lynch. Treats you with respect and like the young man you're on the threshold of being, and not like a dog like some COUGH LYNCH COUGH
the man turned me into a mathematical genius and gave me pride in my work, talked me out of dropping app. maths aswell lucky he did cause i would have missed my course by 5 points.
Great Teacher but i wish he'd slow down a little bit when hes talken
When I was there, he WAS the school. Amazing, amazing, inspirational teacher, made dry economics fascinating.
He is a brilliant brilliant man. He gets up everyday and feels that it's a privelege just to teach. Whereas Lynch comes in and believes its a privelege for us to have him teach us.
Mr Lynch should sit in one of the Bro's classes for a day. THAT'S how you gain the respect you desparately crave Lynch. Bro Kelly is an unbelievable man and teacher. Simply great.
The best teacher I've ever had, genuinely cares about his students a great deal.Has had such a positive impact on peoples lives.Selfless & no ego at all,thank u
By far the favourite - the soul of Clonkeen . I hope he takes the time to read some of the nice comments about himself .
If ever there was some secret military programm to clone perfect teachers from alien dna from area 51 , brother kelly is their finest production
An amazingly positive influence on my life. A TRULY WONDERFUL HUMAN BEING!
I remember a couple of years ago he got in an argument with an opposing manager during a gaelic match.Spent the rest of it behind the goal giving out about him.
Taught me l.cert economics and made it a joy to learn esp for such a dry subject. Can still remember all the classical economists!
"Peig i dosach...agus sin gramadach" Inspirational in and out of the classroom. And a good mate
Amazing person. didnt just teach the syllabus.thought self respect, how to conduct yourself, encourged individual personalities.brilliant, will be missed.
the man deserves a sainthood would have failed maths in the leavin cert if it wasnt for him always have a gr8 chat with him everytime i see him,a true gentleman
HE IS A SOUND TEACHER AND IS FUNNY WHEN HE WANTS TO BE
legen.aint no other word fr this man..maybe should have been elected as the new pope...
class act. legend. brilliant. none of these come close. the man knows EVERY subject inside and out and can teach it to you like you've known it all your life.
clonkeen is only considered a good schhool because this man teaches there. blazes kate hes the greatest teacher ever. clonkeen will close when he retires
Everything he did he lit up , he made Peig seem like the most interesting tale ever. A legend also on the side of GAA pitch. A truly inspiring Man.
Bro. Kelly is simply one of the best teachers the school has ever had/or any school could hope for.
ended up teaching biology in the US after an A in the leaving - I wish I could do 1/8 of what he did with our class. Got a C in hon irish without a cupla focal!
Never had him but did athletics with him for years sound guy. Should have been elected pope
THIS MAN IS AMAZING.. I'M IN COLLEGE NOW BECAUSE OF HIM HE TOOK ME FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE CLASS ( D GRADES) TO B'S IN THREE CLASS FOR MY LEAVING.. FANTASIC MAN
If you put effort into not learning in his class you'd still know everything. Best teacher there is/was/will be!!!
greatest teacher since arisitotle. no bro k is better. jc irish leavin cert maths. he's the most talented and soundest teacher in the school. LEGEND!!!!!!!!!!!!
The carlsberg of education, probably the best teacher in the world
There could not possibly be a better teacher anywhere.
although im 18 years out of school if i had of had this teacher for every subject i would be a millionaire.
the greatest teacher in the universe. the man knows EVERYTHING and how to teach it too. one of the nicest most helpful and funniest men you'll meet.go on bruv!!
It's been 25 years since I was in Br. Kelly's class and I am still grateful to him for his dedication. I wish my own teenagers had teachers like this man
Bro. Kelly for Pope!!! It was a privilege to be taught by this man. Dedicated, helpful, a total legend.
Absolute Legend. Best Teacher in the school. Nobody works as hard as he does
The greatest teacher in the universe - not only does he help those at the top of the class, he also makes sure every1 passes! Teaches at university standard!
this is the best teacher in the world. teaches irish,maths applied maths, ecomonics, religion and id say a lot more he doesnt tell anyone about. legend!
He thinks he is cool by saying "that's cute". but he is a funny guy. from ronan h. in 3rd year
greatest man alive.U'll never catch him pickin strawberries.
My God, The best example of a teacher and a person you will ever meet. Humbled to say I know the man. BRILLIANT! - who agrees wit me? "Impress the ma!", "Wow!"
He got me playing GAA in first year, when I'd never played it before and years after leaving I'm still playing. A hero, who gave everything to all the pupils
only ever had him for a part of fourth year,but he knew my name since first year.always called me "the young O'Connor".still knows me.legend.king among men
pure legend, clonkeen would be lost without him, he should be sainted
if there were a nobel prize for teaching this would be the man to win it.
Greatest teacher ever. So helpful. Would do anything for a student willing to work. Simply the best bro. The man will never retire.
