He was my favourite teacher and a man who did not resort to the kind of tactics that were used by the monobrows who were also on the teaching staff. I got to know him as an adult when my son became a pupil and he was no less inspiring then.
I knew him 1976-1979 and, for me, he brought the concept of learning a new language completely to life. I've since moved on to learn half a dozen more languages. He was sound, wish I'd still had him 1979-1980 after the Inter Cert until I quit CCRi in September 1980
