I always got on with him. Great teacher, very motivational and relaxed in tech. graphics class during the junior cert. Unfortunately for LC there wasn't enough of us to do the class, but he said he would teach us after school on Wednesdays (potentially bumping our LC scores up, as I had an A from JC). He then just never showed to the classes and it had to be scrapped. Poor show from him, really.
Never crossed him as dept. principle, but he never seemed to love that job.
knew derek during the 80s, he was a huge influence on me, only realised after leaving school what a great guy he was
Dod could be an ok guy but was very moody. You could never be sure which Dod would show up. I was disappointed he did not have more of an affinity with the students having studied in Beneavin himself.
I was in beneavin 10 years ago found dod a very unpleasant man.He was a very ignorant man and very hard to get along with.Very poor teacher
I never really talked to him, can be very sound and funny when he wants to be!
I always thought DOD was a sound man.Well back in my day anyway.
How do you not like Dod, the man is one scary mo'fo', but sound as you like
Good Teacher, History 5th + 6th. Very Funny In Class not quite the same outside
Great teacher ! great bloke ! He put loads of his own time into running the soccer teams and the music shows . Top man!!
Had him years ago, glads to see he's still teaching Dod (His Nic then) was probably 1 of the best teachers i've ever had
Had him for TG in 5th and 6th year in a class of 7 or 8 people! Always a good teacher. Very good at explaining things and very sound.
