Hi, also an ex StPats student - might have been in the same class 👍 - great teacher & super role model for young boys (I fondly remember him still) - DaraMacCarthy
Not sure it's the same Eamonn O Donoghue who was a teacher at St Pats Drumcondra in Dublin but if so he's a legend. I'm sitting in a cafe opposite the school getting my car brakes fixed, to think I went to St Pats 41 years ago in primary school but later had Eamonn in my later primary years. I remember him regularly kicking the chalk out of his hands during lessons! Real calming influence I have to say. Top man!
If you get on his good side you'll love him, get on his bad side he'll make life difficult. Absolute legend.
I'm rating him as a GAA coach! Best manager going! He knows his stuff and talks scense about the game! Always inspired me when playing under him!
Class Maths Teacher...U have him u can get an A no bother
Loved my LC maths classes with him. Always let the girls sit in the back and guys had to sit in the front.
av him for honours maths L.C. first tym avin him and i dont think hes good at all. he neve helps and wen u dont no or understand something he just tells u 2 pretend u do. tries to be funny all the tym but hes not.
soundest teacher in the whole school!!!!!! havent learned a thing but hes still mad sound!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Knows how to keep his class going,a bit of a laugh and a fairly good techer!

I luv him, my fav teacher eva, neva hounds u 4 wrk nd neva gve me a note! most memorable line-"stand at da bk of da room" hes a legend

Brilliant teacher, would give you help anytime you needed it and you could have a bit of fun with him at the same time. Great man
made maths enjoyable used to hate it. seriously funny
this guy rocked my world, i loved his class! funny man! and a really good teacher! if all were like him this site wouldnt exist!
deserves the great score excellent teacher. one of the best.
Absolutely fantastic! Never forget him...especially the endless patience and ohh that walk ;-)
His methods of punishment are somewhat questionable, it's fun to watch the lads kneeling at the front of the classroom just for messing in class. Very funny guy
Never forget the teacher dress up day when he wore a sparkley sheet, a tracksuit, and a mask made from a Cornflakes packet. Really nice man and a great teacher.
A grand fella, the trick was to get him on about 'ball early in the class:) Effective teacher too.
He ducks under the table when aeroplanes fly by but its acceptable cuz hes great
God! Best teacher you could wish 4, and a sound man to boot! (HK)
