Fr Cryan is a brilliant teacher, priest and influencer.
In the classroom he was very Stern but fair, in an outside religious setting or in a more calming environment he was approachable pleasant and easy to get on with, he would always express interest in your achievements.
Gerard is a top noch guy!

My experience of father cryan is how little he uses the textbook. His nicknames include Father bear, Father G. , Papa G and various other ones. The only learning in his class is asking questions about his religion to make him question it himself. Many of my favourite activities include writing "Can't reach up here" on the top of his whiteboard and hiding under his desks while he has a class coming in.
