I had the displeasure of having this person as firstly a maths teacher starting in 1984 and then for RE in 5th year. During this entire time both myself and my classmates were subjected to beating on whatever whime he felt like, i was assulted on day during a class where he grabbed my hair and slammed my head so hard into the desk he ripped out a lump of hair, finding it hard to believe what i ahve read so for on this site in realtion to this bully
Right soo.. right .. :L he's an amazing teacher probably would of failed if i didn't have him:) makes you love whatever subject he teaches :)

good enough maths teacher nevr ad im 4 history tho gr8 craic
he gets a lot more credit than deserves. not half the teacher people make him out to be
"rite...now...so therefore" ha hes funny like that realli gud teacher thohed do anything for ya but he likes people to know that!
him and his little blue lunch box . sound man but was a bit scary when i had him first!
i was told i would get an A!. got a D. thanks a bagful
Not a brilliant teachet-but a brill man. Has a genuine interest in his students + does wud do anyhing to help them. The only teacher in school that I felt I could go to. Teaching is a vocation 4him
he makes you learn essays by heart! i knew everyone of them inside out! he had convinced so many in the class they were gettin an A1-imagine our disappointment when we couldnt do the paper! RUBBISH!!
The best teacher I have ever had. Excellent results year in year out prove that! The mans a legend
had mr doherty for 4 years one of the best teachers! wouldnt have passed maths twice were it not for him :) has great time for his students and always helpfull
He put alot of pressure on me to work hard and it really paid off...i now teach history too...thanks
The best teacher Carn will ever see. Gave me so much help & encouragement.Believe me, this man is a legend.He always knows the right things to say, and will help whenever possible!
what a man hands up if u support spurs anyone here like history him and pat mc daid rule go on mc daidsy
An absolutley fantastic teacher! He makes boring things incredibly interesting and really motivates his students to do well. Thanks for everything sir!
doesnt cover the history course, makes students learn by heart - hardly a great education!
Brilliant yr head,even though der was 350 in r yr he new every1 by name.Realy dicated to his work and r yr.one of the best teachers ccs have ever seen.tanx colm
One of the most arrogant men I have ever met in my life, but a very good teacher and cares a lot for his students, especially the female ones.
Told me I should do history for LC because Technical Drawing was only for people who liked drawing circles - So I chose Drawing for LC and got A1
my favourite teacher, he great craic and makes things simpeler.......i also love his stories
The best teacher that will ever walk into Carn School. Will never forget his classes they were the best. Top man and teacher
nicest year head u could hope for.. if ever any problems could go to him n he'd sort it out easily. best formal in Carn's history!!
Not the best teacher in my opinion, my years were wasted in his class. Admitedly he goes out of his way to be helpful and puts a lot of time into his students.
Colm is a great teacher, goes a lot further in helping his students than he gets credit for (can't see him getting paid extra for it).Really enthusiastic.
fantastic teacher,both maths and history.has a genuine interest in his students. thanks sir
Opened my eyes up to entire spectrum of the arts even if some comments a tad spurious such as China syndrome. Over 4 yrs in college still best teacher/lecturer.
Responsible for my best grade in school but more importantly, responsible for nurturing my interest in history & current affairs that helps me 10 years on.
One of the best, if not the best teacher Carn school has ever had and ever will have. Anyone who says otherwise doesnt know what they are talking about.
prob the best teacher in the whole of the community school! i left the school 3 years ago and find that i can still approach colm with any problems that i have!
I had him in 6th yr for maths very good teacher always new a simplier way of showing u how to do it
Found him to be a great teacher.He really made you work , and you could approach him with any problems , subject related or not.
Absolutely fantastic, great guidance and wisdom, others should learn from him
Excellent and interesting teacher always willing to help his pupils out
good teacher. a lot of underlining. an awful lot of "useless information" as he called it!
excellent teacher who should not be criticised responsible for all those outstanding grades in maths and history. Cheers Colm!!
dedicated teacher. taught me just as much geography as anything else. an inspiration to us all!!
i had colm for maths and i thought he was a really good teacher. a bit militant at times but he got the message through! i was always bad at maths but i got a1
Fantastic teacher, but does talk a lot about the old days, but it must work or something just look at the leaving cert results from his class.
Brilliant Teacher. Takes a genuine interest in helping students especially with what they should do after school. Wise man, wish I had listened more!
Excellent teacher. Makes interesting speeches and instills a passion for the subject. History never ends...
good teacher but tells abit too many stories about his youth and the days he had more hair
