It’s great to read the kind remarks and compliments being made about a teacher as good as Colin Mulligan. These remarks were written in recent years (2016,2017..) and I agree with them all. The only difference though is Colin Mulligan was my maths teacher around 1985-88, yet he was held in the same esteem back then. Some teachers just make that much of a difference! Well done Sir!
The coolest, most down to earth guy I know. So approachable and his knowledge is through the roof.
What a great guy and a great teacher.
Legend, from Luke McGann and Andrew Lyons :)
Great teacher and he was very intelligent always joking around with his students a lovely man and loves the owl "cowboys"
Excellent teacher and a very nice man
He is a awesome teacher in the school.I learned a lot from him when I'm in his class also he beds to make joke everyday to breath ;-)
great teacher!! has the craic but gets the work done too!!
Without doubt my favourite teacher in the school. He makes Mondays mornings just that little bit easier to get out of bed to go into maths!
pure ledge!!! funnyiest and soundest teacher! loves his maths! and yeah still goes on bout blowing page nine up on the wall
A teacher that actually makes me miss being in school. Who could fault him in any way? Is he still recommending blowing the maths tables up to a1 size to stick on your bedroom wall?
A complete LEGEND this man is a HERO!!!! He is the single best teacher in the school...if not the world :)
i never had this teacher since im female, but my boyfriend did, and he is always on about him, and we are doing PhD's now!! evidently, a fantastic teacher to the class of 2003
I was crap at maths in primary school and he managed to help get me AN a IN HIGHER MATHS in the JC absoloute legend
Ye hes the best maths teacher in the school. wish i had him this year
Absolute legend!!! The time this man puts into teaching and various other jobs in St. Pauls is phenomenal. He's a credit to the school and is hands down the best teacher in the school. He gives up his lunch break every day!!
Mr Mulla, brilliant teacher. Always looked forward to maths 1st thing monday morning, even if it was before double PE and I sometimes didn't make either for obvious reasons.
ordinary maths. Class of 05. The Supreme Overlord of All Things Mathematical. X my hat ya tulip.
Mulligan or MulloX as he is now know (2006 Higher LC class) is a great teacher, by far the most intelligent man in the school
a good teacher, but he sometimes makes offensive comments about peoples personal features.
Give the chap the Nobel Peace Prize!!!He is an unbelieveable teacher!!
Living legend of the school, clear and understanding. tulip
Total respect for this guy, only had him for 1 year, wish it was more. was also jealous of him, when I set eyes on his wife ;)
The best teacher in St Pauls.When it comes to maths he hits the nail on the head.He is sound,funny,honest,helpful,respectful,he is just a legend.
is to maths that Maradonna was to football- a junky...! or legend, cant remember which! seriously tho, credit to school.
gem of a teacher and one of the few inspiring i had.hope he knows of this site to recognise his students appreciation through the yrs. (class 2000)
I know this has already been said, but Colin is a truly brilliant teacher and deserves lots of respect.
I left St. Paul's 4 years ago. Mr. Mulligan was easily the best teacher I ever had. Approachable, hardworking, but above all extremely talented and clever.
ordinary level leaving cert maths 04 wat a class if we didnt have mrmulligan most of us would have failed
Exellent teacher.funny in all ways.WELL DONE mulligan.Keep it up.
Best Teacher I have ever seen. Uber cool and really gets the message across.
A Funny, Interesting, Honest, Informative, Friendly and skiled communicator. Carlsberg don't do teachers, but if they did....
One of the best! And he married the school secretary. Boys have been drooling over her for years!
well the best teacher in maths i ever had,absolute legend.
Once he told the class that page nine of the log tables was so important you should xerox it and put it on your wall, I did. He's a legend.
cant say much more then has been said already a legend and a sound man...
what an absolute legend....helped me get to where I am now!!!drop kicked me into line!!

A great teacher, one of the most memorable from Paul's for all the right reasons
Best teacher I ever had! Set me up for my Engineering degree!
no other teacher wud skip every lunch to teach app. maths, got the feeling he loved his job. Definitely 1 of St Pauls few jewels - roll in.. roll in..
Fantastic teacher ditto to all the above. Definitely take a page from this mans book. Rarely has to use the fiddle factor!!!
'Billy Crystal' was a great teacher, very easy to ask questions of.
The stuff of legend: has the knowledge, has the ability to impart that knowledge, has a sense of humour but sadly has no rugby skills !
Great teacher...knows his stuff which is a novelty in that school! "Listen lads, you've got to learn to factorise!"
Unrivalled intellect, will probably go on to greater things, one outstanding teacher.Complete legend.
Brilliant, his record of graduates speaks for itself. Best Maths teacher by a mile
