Mr Townsend was, quite simply, the best teacher I ever had. Before his obvious ability to teach Honours Maths was recognised, he was my teacher for Ordinary Level in the Junior Cert and Leaving Cert. I scored an A1 in the Leaving with ease after I was spurred on to REALLY apply myself by an impossibly difficult mock exam - which I am certain was a bit of a set-up by Mr Townsend. When I was there, everyone used to waffle on about the English teachers being great, but 'Ernie' was the real star.

I owe him the world really. With his A1 from Maths I did the degree I wanted, and from there the Masters I needed, and now the career I always intended. All largely due to his top quality teaching.
