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.
As a teacher one of the best you could ever have . Genuinely
cares 2 much bwt d teachers n protectn dem not bwt d students specially wen it cums 2 sports! lightn up swel stp bein so negative..
nice guy..good principal but could allow a bit more leaniance for the fun element.and please put money into art and music facilities not just the rugby ones!!
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!
Needs to get involved with the other students and become popular and stop giving out. Doing a good job and easy to talk 2. Power has gone to his head! And whats with the Cameras??
hes pure sound and approachable compard to other staff in the school. Listens to the students
Great as a history teacher. Never should have gone into admin. Such a loss of a history teacher. So when are we going on that tour of Limerick Dermot?
Good principle but doesn't give enough credit to the hurlers,hockey players or the footballers its all about rugby i no its the best sport but crescent seniors don't win that much
I think he's a good principal, very fair and supports everything in the school!!!
Absolutely the best teacher I have ever had, and avery nice person. most posts here re Principal can only come from people who don't understand the pressures of such a position.
calls pointless meetins wit us "now I don't mean to give out but"is his most famous quote used at nearly every ascembly this year!just dont give out then!
cool as a teacher, let your principal status go a tad to ur head, but over all ur alright, ur doing great!
Doesn't get 2 no students very well. Says he trust's us den goes puttin' cameras al over da place!!!!!
Make the point, explain it, offer evidence. We didn't get along at all, but he was still a great teacher.
Will you give us 1st years a break? What's with the cameras? Absolute pesimist
i'm privilaged to say i was in he's last english class EVER. thought me so much stuff for life,'never stop writing' keep on rockin' in a free world!
he needs to stop telling us our bad points and concentate on our good points he should spend time with the students he should stop being so negative lighten up
legend!good principal but wat a waste amazing teacher had him 4 philosophy in ty takin a break from a 3000wrd college phil essay rite now
an all round good person,who imparts knowledge and understanding whenever he speaks
Really needs to be more positive.Stop caring about what other people think.And cameras??You so trust us??
Dermot doesn't have the same amount of respect from students that Pat o connell did.I did my lc last year and couldnt wait to get away from his tyranny.
favourite phrase;"lads i dont mean 2 be negative but......." relax dermo!point out some positives, it might encourage us
he says things that are so cheesy that even some of his most loyal female supporters couldn't like him for them
Had him for a year of leaving cert english. Fantastic teacher. Will always remember his classes. Helped me to LOVE english. Well done sir!
great teacher-trying to do the best for ccc but please stop giving out all the time.The students would love to see around more and get to us like pat did.thanks
As principal is only interested in how Crescent is seen by outsiders and keeping up the schools reputation, the school has gone to the dogs under him
On a positive note he hasnt burned d skool down yet but on a negative note d rubbish is taking ova d skool??? PLease recycle(MR>COWHY)
He would of got a way better rating if he was a teacher. whats wit the camaras. its madness
one of the best teachers I ever had-made me love english. Pity he is no longer teaching.
Great Teacher, Sound Man! I'd say a great principal aswell. Well respected in my time, left 98' Fair play to you Dermot !!!
has a great love for english, doing well as principal
i think once he became princ. he lost interest in getting to know his students and is now only intersted with what people outside of school think and not us.
Lovely man but needs to stop telling us whats wrong with us all the time,other than that a great principal
power has gone to his head lighten up and stop complainin at every little thing. your also runnin the school into the ground
Crescent lost one of the best english teachers when he became principal
Best teacher I ever had! We think you are great Dermie!
Conrats Dermot, I started in the comp the same year as you, De Chardin 1983
Seems unable to deal with the pressures of being principal. Needs to lighten up.
Absolutely loves himself. The most negative person alive, be happy you'll live longer.
The best teacher i ever had, an absolute legend. Deserves to be principal.
Excellent teacher was very interested in students and their results. My favourite teacher ever.
Nice guy. Knows his stuff. Deserves to be a Crescent teacher (i.e. has quality)
Nice, but should stop complaining about the students.
