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.

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.

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.
