He is one of my favourite teachers even though he retired.He helped people in my class that never wanted to learn and messed around all the time.He taught me a lot.A teacher I will never forget.
Any one who has been to Nessan's knows that Mr. Mooney is the soundest teacher there. Encourages you to want to do well. Always there to help if you genuinely need it. Very funny and makes learning Geography fun. Those quizzes he gave were some of the best times in school.
Most amazing teacher in the world! They definitely don't make them like him anymore!
I don't actually know who this is. but seeing how popular he is has inspired me to do amazing things, like overthrow a government. 11/10, would take world domination class again.
Awesome teacher. Close your books. C...lose your books. Will you tell me please....................... -------- is of course...... WRONG. up you get. :-D
Mr Mooney was the most inspirational teacher I've ever had. 6 years of geography and one fantastic year of English. Such a dedicated teacher. Clearly has great care
Great teacher. You don't realise until you are gone the profound effect a good teacher has on you. Brilliant method of drilling knowledge into your brain for life... I still know how drumlins and eskers were formed and what rivers flow through most towns in Ireland.
soundest teacher going,you cant not listen to him , very interesting and is so funny! and has a cool beard
I left Neasains in the mid 1980's and I'm in my early forties now. Mr. Mooney taught us Inter-Cert Science and History. If it wasn't for him and Mr.Nolan I would have given up on education altogether and not gone on to do a BSc and and MSc in TCD. Back then he quizzed us on the previous lesson, those who didn't answer correctly had to stand up ("Arise!") and get extra homework (probably banned under Health and Safety regulation now). He never raised his voice. Mr. Mooney was/is a true gent.
QUIZ QUIZ QUIZ. Absolute legend, made me want to do Geography for my Leaving, some of my best memories and friends from Nessan's come from his class.
you couldnt have a sounder teacher just make sure your not a waster or you'll get loads of pages off him!
A wonderful, wonderful teacher, Mr Mooney taught me many many years ago, he maintained order in the class by a look, never had to raise his voice.
What a teacher, owe my A1 to him doubtless. Managed no pages from him in my 3 years. A truly inspiring teacher, he told me university would make me and as always he was right. Fondest of memories.
Words cannot describe this masterpiece of a teacher.
10/10 on everything best teacher goin!! So helpful and understanding!! DOUBLE OR NOTHIN!! haha
What a legend... I miss not having him as a teacher any more :(
years later ur still gona remeber this man. such a hero. really and truely wants everyone to do well.
this man is the best teacher in the whole world and soundest man ever!
It was the funniest moment ever when he sang Ice,Ice Baby in class while we were learning about glaciers! OMG lol!
Got me my B3 in geography for the LC in honours...ME! A true honest to god hero, a person who cares for his job and cares for the students under him
"your a good student!!!! you just need to work!!" wat a ledge
What a great guy. Can we ever forget the 2 page essays on the inside of a Ping Pong Ball or a stick of Chalk. And of course you may be daring and go for Doubles or quits. Great Teacher
Close the books Close em! this man is a pure legend. i should have done better in history and geography in the jc but i was 2 lazy. this great teacher gave me all the guidelines.

The best teacher in the school by far, I had Mooney in 3rd year for my Inter cert and he thought us 3 years work in one year, A very nice man, who has a teaching method which should be patented,Thanks
hes got all the respect i could give he made geography fun interesting and educational which was very hard with the class i was in fair play to him if all teachers were like him skool wud be heaven
He should write a book on the ultimate teaching model. It's tragic that I don't have him anymore. "CLOSE 'EM, CLOSE 'EM, CLOSE 'EM!"
close ur books,close him can u tell me please best teacher by a mile
Without a doubt, one of the greatest teachers of the past century. "STAND UP YOU LAZY WASTER, AND EXPLAIN TO EVERYONE WHERE YOURE HOMEWORK IS".A true genius who will always be remembered by me.Legend.

Far and away the best teacher I have ever had- being "pick-able on-able" resulted in reams of pages but also a BA. An example of what teachers should strive 2B
The reason I did Geoghraphy at University. He is the best teacher I've ever had I learnt more in his class than in Uni. Double or quits was the best invention!
