What a teacher should be; friendly approachable and qualified.
Absolute legend, how a man of his calibre ended up in the Friary I'll never know.Learned more about art and literature in 6 months with him than I did anywhere. What an English teacher should be..
i had him for six year pass irish and i am still laughing to this day about being left out half way through double irish if he forgot
3 yrs since i was there,only had him for the last 3mnts, best class i ever went to ,great man, with a really big heart
One of the most inspirational individuals I've ever come across. I learned so much from Finbarr. A great nurturer of creativity and a beautiful man.
A laugh but unpredictable - A good day: quiz. A bad day: desk thrown at you. "An aimsir caite" out on its own like the Cork Farmer's Union"
Such a pet,really knew his stuff just couldnt get it across that well.true gentleman.loved the good ole quizes,shur ya cant beat them!
17 years since my leaving but I still know my irish karate, an inspirational teacher. Glad to see from other comments that still dancing to his own drum.
Finbar, still at it eh,Irish Karate, projectile obsession, excellent! Keep up the good work.We love ya baby!
Had him up until junior cert. Desks, chairs, chalk, a yellow mobile phone all got smacked off the wall. Loved the class, didnt learn much tho!
square, circle, triangle... what was that all about - terrible english teacher but a really cool man - great actor too - ah the flying desks and chairs......
Unorthodox in the extreme but I liked that - a true poet
Never learned anything in his class but had a whole lot of fun! I do remember the desk throwing tho!!
Finbar and his Monday morning classes of Irish karate. Made Peig Sayers interesting! Gas man.
Absoulte legend of the teacher.The best to my knowledge,he should be teaching honours maths in stead of the joke thats teaching now.
its been 10 yrs since I've been to the friary and it seems he has changed... does he not throw desks at students anymore???
who needs an education when u can have nature walks and quizzes instead. a very nice fella
A bit too relazed, if he was anymore layed back he would fall into a coma.
