Mr. Devine is honestly the best teacher I've ever had. He has innovative teaching methods and a brilliant relationship with his students. He may be hard on students but that's only because he wants to get the best out of them, and if students would only try to co-operative with him, I'm sure they'd understand!

Very difficult man to deal with! He didn't finish the course for my daughter and her and her class ended up getting grinds in history of all subjects

He's a never hard man to get along with not one bit approachable for those who may need a bit of help or extra work, he's very stuck in his ways!! He definitely has favourites in the class and makes sure everyone knows it. Very intelligent man himself but seems disinterested in teaching!! He also has a feeling of superiority over everyone even other teachers...

He is such a lovely teacher and one of the best I have ever had - I had him for Junior Cert English and now for Leaving Cert History. He really brings the subject to life and class with him is never dull - I always look forward to it. He makes the learning really interactive, like he'll ask us "What would you do if you were Gladstone?" and make us vote to really get us thinking. He also lets the class decide on when to do the Research Study Report and things like that. 5 stars :D
