Very unsociable man, appears to be very bitter about life. Didn't really care about his students, he didn't even bother to learn half their names even in 6th yr

A good teacher if you are an intelligent student. Gives excellent notes but is very unapproachable if a student has a problem. West Brit.

Intelligent man. Not bothered teaching! Rewrote the examples from the book onto the blackboard and then got you to do questions from the book? Teach? Not Des!

In the 1980s the school treated Dessie Fortune most appropriately - he only took Honours. Judging by some comments, he has been wasted on the mediocre of recent

An absolute waste of space. He regards teaching as a chore. He's from Tipperary- puts on that English accent when he's teaching!

He is an extremely intelligent man. No vision. I am a sucessful engineer with a string of A results in Maths in college. He told me I would never pass honors LC

Mr. Fortune hates teaching and it shows. He is very unhelpful and very condascending. He just couldn't care less about you. He has his own problems, though..
