LC 96 - just mention Andy Cole move to Manu and set him off. Gent and forward thinking. Would have done better in Biz if I listened and read the business pages. Decent, decent man
By a mile the best teacher that I had during my time in St Mary's. Had a great ability to explain things clearly and was focused on getting us a good education in business as well as helping me get an A in my leaving cert. I hear that he is going under the Croke Park deal - will be missed.
Great teacher. Had him for Accounting, and he decided to teach my Business out of hours for no reason other than he thought I'd do good in it.
As a past pupil now living in the US , he had a great influence on me !Probably the best teacher that I ever had ! He was inspirational ! John Flaherty Class of 1978 [email protected] 617-335-7142
He has a mathematical mind of a genius,he can add really high numbers correctly without using a calculator.Kind of scares me when he asks a question and looks at someone to answer but sound if u dont get on his bad side
Knew his stuff inside out. Only criticism - he got side tracked with Eircom shares and the such. Otherwise fantastic inside and outside of school
Ledgend - Excellent teacher, makes you understand the course. Funny and mad for the Airlines, Dell and Nissan Cars!
possibly the the greatest busines teacher eva. knows everytin bout computers and knows da course better than any other teacher. also the soundest 1 should b givin a medal
Never did a tap but I always passed, class teacher, just wish I payed more attention as ive business component plus project next year in college. At least I learned how to spell business ha!
Great Man for the crack, but also a serious Teacher. its hard to have a balance between the two but I think he got it right
A great man who had a big influence on me. I had great respect for him as he treats his students as peers and not inferiors
best accounting/business teacher anywhere -sound man
"Mornin boys!!!!!" "Right lads, I obviously havent explained this properly!!!!!"
had great sayings like "think of higgin's down the road"and "go back to the cash book" a great teacher he really loves what he does.
I had Declan for Inter Cert. Honours Maths 1983-1986. He was dead on, a great teacher and if it wasn't for him I wouldn't have got the B . Hard working but interesting.
Best teacher I had - sound man too!! Had him for 5 years and he after an initiation of three years, treated you like men for LC. Fantastic anecdotes.
In my experience, the only teacher to treat students as adults and educate them for life. Outstanding, thoughtful, dedicated.
I HAD DECLAN FOR FIVE YEARS LOVED COMPUTERS BROADBAND SOUND MAN YOU COULD LISTEN TO HIM TALKING ALL DAY ESPECIALLY ABOUT EIRCOM SHARES, CLEVER MAN RESPECTED
A sound teacher and a sound man. Highly motivated and made sure the students were likewise. I'm sorry I didn't had him for more subjects.
Excellent teacher.Always gave good advice when it was needed.A sound man
sound man with a good heart.helped me get through my JC maths.dead on
Sound guy as long as you didn't get on the wrong side of him. Good teacher and was always waiting for the "fibre-optic cable" to be rolled out.
A great guy and a bit of a philosopher. Gave me an education, not just in JC Maths. Likes talking about Civics.
had him for business,he made it seem so easy and simple.Pity he loses it every 20 minutes.picks on students he dislikes.
Thanks Mr burke you believed in me when nobody else did
what a legend.he told us we could do v.well in the l.cert.da double ebtry .legend
a very nice man, very helpful and genuine. the auld double entry. ill never forget it. he is wasted in that place
Declan's a great teacher. He really helped me out and gave loads of advise during my leaving year. If you're reading this Declan, hope all's well.
very decent man.Will always help a student out.Thanks for the help!
dislike the man, dislike as a teacher, but he was good and definetely gave enuf for you to survive no matter how disinterested you were.
Delcan is a great teacher accepts all students. Offers 100% help in class and is probaly the best and most sound teacher in the school.
Goot teacher - would do better if he stopped waffling on about guinness peat and riverdeep and such. I suppose he is giving elan a good going over these days
