Some man.He's the reason I chose art...and then he left the school and the new teachers have nothing on him.Sound and knowledgeable teacher all the same.
Great Teacher . Wish he hadn't retired thought . He'll be missed
Simply the best teacher I'll ever have. He's an extremely nice guy and a great teacher. He really enjoys his job. Portmarnock will never be the same without him 10 years from now.
Very good and helpful with students
Brought in the thriller video back before mtv
Sound man when he likes you, although is quite slow to work and doesnt meet deadlines. Never finishes his sentences, its hard to understand what he is asking of you most of the time. Is good at what he does
Had him in the 80's. probably the best and coolest teacher i ever had. made everyone feel relaxed and to be creative. has so much time for students. good to see that he is still the same.dedication!
the best teacher ive ever had, so much time for the students, wether stayin till 10pm to help projects get finished or bringing class to expo's.. I met him few months back and still a genunine guy
Best teacher ever! He inspired me to do what I do.... I love my job and I have him to thank
One of the greatest teachers, really cares for his students and wants them to do well. He always makes his classes really interesting, a decent bloke all round.
scabby, always moaning and scary. doesnt realise your not supposed to do anything in tutor class!
Always liked him. Graduated 87. Very good art class. Always tried to get each student to play to their strengths in class. I could not draw to save my life but he was very encouraging.
Great teacher, makes you enjoy learning.Other teachers could learn by him.
Great teacher, very talented, almost always right. I wish I'd listened to his advice. GREAT taste in music. He doesn't explain things 'clearly' because he wants you to THINK FOR YOURSELF. It's ART. Sheesh. I
funniest guy ever always good for a laugh and ver rarely gets mad such a legend
..soundest teacher ever..very funny..brill at art..hes so cool
Best teacher ever and is a great artist.Have a great laugh every week in his class!!!
is a nice man i couldnt imagine school with out him but he could explain things alittle bite more clearly
He's the best teacher I've had throughout my shcool and college life. I did nothing in school otr then for his class, he knew I was a mesr an tried to help. Legend!!! thnx sir D.R.
sound man .best teacher i had.great artist.really funny,bad taste in music tho
Nicest teacher ever, cares way too much about the stundents and expects nothing back in return for staying in the school til 6 everyday workin on stuff for us
A nice guy but a poor teacher. Had alot of time for the people he liked but there was more to the class than the natural artists.
An absolute Hero-without him id probably be doing Business or ARTS in UCD-thanks for showing me the way to Art college-one in a million-DT
super teacher,loved art class was very relaxed had music on aswell keep up the great work sir

cool guy can be a bit hotheaded if you try him but overall hes a good guy he seems to have time and respect for anyone an thets somthin I respect. dar
great, dedicated and actually likes 2 teach! an inspiration....jus dont mention limerick...
This man got me to honours standard in one year, besides his personality, he has plenty of time for students who want to learn
good teacher uses students as instruments for jokes far too much
brilliant teacher and person probably one of the few teachers who thakes teaching so seriously
One of the very best teachers I' ever had through school, college or university; undergrad and postgrad. Hugely inspirational! Donal, you're in my prayers!!!!
best art teacher so far and im in art college.extremely dedicated and underappreciated.thanx for the hard work sir
best teacher ever is doney, best class, best place to go on the hop from double maths!! great laugh always there to help.. v cool.
an amazing teacher, dedicated to work and students. glad he didnt become an architect, we would have lost out.thank you for all u have done for us.
Best teacher I ever had. Some people do an arts degree and use teaching as a fallback. This guy was born to teach.
Fantastically brilliant teacher! 5/5! He has made me want to take up Art as a career.
brill teacher,so dedicated.only serious art teacher in skul.makes art class enjoyable and fun.thanks sir!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Extremely dedicated teacher, puts in a huge amount of unappreciated work.Cares about students,always working to inspire and motivate to the point of exaustion.
he puts in a lot of unappreciated time for students.
Great teacher, very dedicated , but things always have to be done his way. Encourages students to have a laugh in class but sometimes can't take a joke himself.
Talk about the extra mile, he used to be there late at night slaving away to get the projects finished!
Although I only took art for a short period of time, he insists on expanding your perception of the world outside the leaving cert. Invaluable staff member.
He's a great teacher! Has the respect of the students, and knows how to do his job well!
