"Get up early and study lads!, don't be hanging around abra-kebabra!" HWY! Used to come in to classes and say "Can I have a word with Kevin Kearney, lads?"

Cathal was known to require his students to learn the "HWY" of history. If you didn't know the "HWY" you didn't know anything. He also uses the word "HWY" in a strange way by referring to it as "the HWY", which makes no sense. An exmple of a phrase used by Leahy might include "The analls of it lads, HWY". He was indeed a gangster. Some say he was responsible for the "permanent marker incident" of 2010. It is alleged he wrote on the map with marker and arranged a cover up. Gangster stuff indeed.
