As previously said he was tough but fair. He wanted the best for his students.I left in '77 and have met him a few times through the years, I'm always amazed to see how much he cares about former stud
Had a genuine love for the Irish language and in hons Leaving, opened my eyes to the richness of Irish literature
knew him from primary school 63 to leaving cert 68. fantastic teacher. great guy
Authoritative and at times brutal. You needed to be in a place like that. But the human side of him was always evident. Happy retirement Dan.
MAN could he shout!! He was stern but I respect him. Met after leaving and he's a real nice man!
damn good teacher. Packed a mean slapping hand. ok if you played football.
6ft3 and about 20stone is scary at any age, and he scared us. Saw him in the Adison Lodge then one night he recognised ME and asked how i was. Sound.
Tough but fair. I left school over tens years ago and he still scares me to this day.
A good teacher but hard as nails. You did not want to get on the wrong side of this guy if you valued your life!
he never forgot my name after my first day, he'd dig da arm off ya in da scale line. ran da school well... 93/98
Some man for one man! Hard but fair! Principal while i was there!
Great Teacher, and excellent person.Hard but very fair.
An Absolute Gentleman. One of the fairest people you could possibly meet.
