legend but not for his ability to teach unfortunately
couldn't teach to save his life but he's still a legend. every class was fun
nice guy, good laugh, really knows his stuff about business and when you give him a chance and pay attention you learn something. but really needs to put his foot down and show some authority in class
Tries very hard, really knows his stuff, but strays off topic and allows classes to spiral out of control. What a sound man in all fairness though
very nice man.. funny out... can't reli control a class
Nice guy but not the greatest teacher but I was lucky to be there in the early 80's when he started up the rugby programme again. Was a great time and good people not that Jack Casey cared about rugby
he really is sound,but wen gets class he starts jokes and it totally backfire.he a rugby legend do
nice man better teacher that he is given credit for. but people cant get iver the nice man part. got me a b1 in the leaving.
The guy is a rugby historian and should get to lecture in college about stand up guy always walked his subjects
doent know how 2 teach at all....and spend all day giving out
He really tries, gets frustrated sometimes and loses his temper, often misunderstood. He is so calm all the time that when someone really annoys him, he really lets it out.
Great teacher if peolple listened and if people knew his personality thet would realise that he actually has an interest in all students and not just the rugby
Good teacher with a heart of gold. Has done more for Ardscoil rugby than anyone ever will. Except for Harta jnr hes a legend
A great guy, one of the fewyou remember after 20 years and still like to meet
students im my jc geography class have 3 choices 1. listen to him blabber on about rugby 2. sleep or 3. teach themselves.
ok thats it lads, now back to the ranch...i.e. the TEXTBOOK!
Is he going. I breezed my way to a b1 in the leaving thanks to this man. Other people woulld have too if they were able to shut up.
Knew his stuff about Business,funny man,was helpful if u wanted him to be. If the messers in the corner had shut up We'd hav done alot betr in L C.
Q.Sir can we talk about rugby. A.Not till the last five minutes relax and pay attention to Maslows hierarchy of needs. Good man good heart
I will never forget Mickey Field walking into class and seeing Dessy explaining A penalty conversion with a graphic chalk board explanation
MORE RATINGS THAN ANY OTHER TEACHER PROVING THAT HE IS A LEGEND. When its fun its fun and when he is teaching if you listen you will actually learn. Weird huh
Can't say enough good things about Des, has an encyclopediac knowledge of the game of rugby and is a whiz at Business, very funny guy... hardcore Legend.
Nice guy, no control, enjoyed his "classes", had to teach myself at home though....
Dessie,man I thought this guy was gone,he is okay,sound!!
Whenever i walk onto a Rugby pitch ill hear the name Desy. Whenever i get stressed in my chosen field of business ill think of Desy and crack a joke and carryon
This Man effectively speaking put the foot down on a few occasions and now his classroom has become a utopia of learning.Fresh from da hood and into the classrm
ohh my god this guy is a legend no doubth no one can say they dont want desy as a teacher
I don't remember him actually *teaching* us anything...
Ledgend of a man in and outside of the classroom. Desmundo's name will be heard echoing in the hall's of ard scoil ris forever.
Des Harty will be written about in the history books. A legend of a teacher
The argey barge that,effectively speaking,is omnipresnt in the classroom makes him a stand-up in his own right.as teaching is concerned...this is true"price"
The most influential and inspiring teacher i had. A man students can relate to. Unafraid to voice his opinion about the autocratic setup in the school. U DA MAN
If I could be any teacher i'd be Sir Desmond Harty. Great Potential, precision pass, etc.
Can't wait to have the money to donate to that school and have something named after him. Can't say enough good things about the guy!
brings a bit of humour to business class.Legend rugby coach
the school wouldn't be the same without him.has done more for the school than anybody ever has or will
He needs to be given a chance he's bad at controlling a class but given a chance he would teach well However he go's off topic easily we've all seen it happen!
ha ha ha we glued you to the door. Des your a funny man!!!!
PEOPLE JUST DON'T GIVE THIS GUY A CHANCE, HE IS A LOT BETTER THAN PEOPLE ARE MAKING OUT HERE, THE SCHOOL WOULDN'T BE THE SAME WITHOUT HIM..A LEGEND..
Legendary Rugby Coach but cannot teach business and should not be allowed teach any class! Good laugh though,
Deserves a medal for the crap he had to put up with in the 80's from the rebels wihtout a clue
nice guy but definitely should not be allowed teach leaving certs,i've had him since second year and his ability to go right off the point never fails to amaze
Dessie was a top man to teach the business but was always given the lower classes to teach in my time there. A keen rugby coach, I had him in first year.
This man is a legend.There should be a corridor named after him, AHH!
