Dono Bucks, what a legend! only have four words to say 'Pardon the pun lads!'
great teacher who tries hard. great at explaining things he doesnt give out but still keeps the class in order sound to everyone he makes english and history easy subjects and enjoyable classes
Good when he really tries. He's fairly inconsistent, misses a lot of class time for rugby and that really annoyed me. When he really understands the topic he can be very good, but as I said before he is a bit patchy. Nice guy, can be a good teacher.
loved by everyone , best teacher in the school by miles , overall nice guy , ledgend and class rugby coach who gives it his all
Great teacher, gets everyone involved in English. Not quite as good as Mr. Sheehan though
as a man brillant,as a teacher made me love english again and helped me b more voacl in my oppions and not afraid make a mistake in class,never knocks an oppion.great person
one of his best quotes: "now that we have agreed that this character is feeling pain, would you say it's emotional pain or kick in the twins pain?" Great guy and great teacher!!
U changed my life Don, thakn you! I really like you!!
He went off on his honeymoon and left his leaving certs hanging. Legend. A fine head of hair on him too
Don's gettin married in the morning................. do do do do ddo. in service day! how right you are
never ONCE showed us how to lay out/write an essay,seeing as how every leaving cert Q is an essay, kinda would have been handy to know sir!!
"Right lads", he's a good teacher and a character at that. Bit too much time with the rugby there , boy
I have no interest in rugby, but I find all the comments about his rugby ties are unfair. He's an intelligent and fun teacher, who treats everyone with respect.
Always found him to be a good teacher. Interested in his students
Poetry was not exactly his forté. He seemed just to make stuff up off the top of his head. the cain and abel thing was hilarious.
HERO! Knows whats really important like rugby and doesn't listen to the begrudgers who knock him.
His Time in The Marines Hardened him a little too much. In class rugby examples relating to the leaving were a little too much for me.
He's a character, and his classes are great fun, but for all the wrong reasons. Most of the time I truly believed he had no idea what he was doing.
Grand Teacher, gets the work done, and of course he helped bring back the cup after a 9 year drought! "Gentlemen!!!"
its rate my teachers, not rate my rugby coach.as a teacher hes weak,and thats what hes paid to do.if rugby is a hobby keep it outside school hours like
Rugby Rugby Rugby not liked or respected leaving certs are suffering.Not even Sound to RUGBY PLAYERS who don't respect him!!GENTLEMEN
great teacher so wat if he s interested in rugby man has to have a life
only had him for religion in 3rd year but lovely guy. v friendly.
hes a nice guy but buckley is your typical private school teacher who loves the rugby players and just puts waaay too much emphasis on the sport in school life
"Gentlemen"This junior cert exam is no cake walk" but a good teacher none the less,has the right attitude2it,if your willing2learn
Fair enough teacher, spends too much time committed to rugby and missed a lot of class as a result, this wasn't very helpful a week before the pre's.
