Dermot was a very good teacher. He was passionate about learning and had good control in the classroom. You just wouldn't disrespect him. He had his favourites though and if you weren't in that clique you were made to feel like an under achiever.

Dermot Cowhey is a fabulous teacher, he was my english teacher in the 80's and is now head teacher. He is approachable and firm at the same time.

I think he is an awful principal. Was a good teacher but not a good princiapl. Power has gone to his head. Doesnt care about the students at all. What is with all the suspensions? He is a bully!
