Thought us all how to be a stand up guy, a dying breed.
an incredibly supportive teacher. very positive and outstanding at his job. a pleasure to be his student and now, even ten years on, meeting him on the street is still a pleasure.
A legend, miss those Geography classes with Benny oblivious to Boycie's non-stop messing behind me.
"So gents does anyone know what caused the tsunami then?".. "Erosion, father??".... "Not quite what Im looking for Michael but we'll put it over here to the side of the board." Thats how nice he was!
i went to frank o connors school a while back lets say and always found him to be fair and a great teache,always a pleasure to meet him and chat
Taught me History and CD. Very fair, very positive (not common in Irish education system) and a good teacher to boot. Later in life, a pleasure to meet on the street.
I wonder what he will be like as a principal though.....Miss you Fr.Mac =(
gents.....thats all you needed to hear. an absolute legend
one of munchins greats, never one to cut down a student" thats a good answer james just not quite the one im looking for"
I see father O'Connor is still rating himself!! Nuff said!
Fantastic guy once you get past 3rd year, up till which he's terrifying. Great fun, great humour,very charismatic. Great Guy
Very nice man, tough and fair. I'm glad he's a priest and won't be able to produce any more clones of himself. Very funny also. Can't stress how nice he is.
One of my all time fav's - a true gentleman, class of '92 and bumped into about 12months ago, he remembered my 1st name - Personally I think one of the greats !
Calm cool and collected. Doesn't teach me but what a legend! Never has there been a dicipliner like him.
taught me many years ago , what a charismatic guy and a great teacher, not one to be crossed(ever)!Catholisism has robbed ireland of a natural leader.
Couldn't meet a nicer man. always gave me free 3 quid lunches and plenty of seconds.
Good teacher. cant be trusted though a snake in the grass, too cool for school thats his problem!!
Very good teacher. Has good control of every class. Explains what he teaches well but doesn't prepare students well for LC questions.
the scary face of the irish clergy. as long as you stay on his good side your sorted. a good teacher too.
Very nice man. Wit sharper than a serpent's tooth. Just stay off his bad side.
Excellent mentor and very popular as a teacher and friend.
