Great principal ( dooney came in between) had him 1st and 6th year.Tough but very fair sums up this man.
the man was a legend. if only all priests/teachers were like this guy.
Brilliant Man, shame hes gone. Mr Mowldes has nothing on him.
brilliant principal the school was in shambles when donnelly was left in charge ...
Always will respect this man, its good to have someone like him in school
Ah johnny from sherriffer! Absolute gentleman, loved the sense of humour, i still have a few notes here i owe ya sir!
Best priest going, living legend and seems to be constantly in deep thought. Best choice for an irish pope.
Sound man. Good principal much better then mc dunphy god i hate that bloke. Hand is sound best of luck.
Legend barely describes this man....thanks for everything...nice fella
Fantastic, can say a bad word about him, if we had more people like him the world would be a better place!
Soundest tacher going always listen to your side before he suspended you
nobody could honestly say something bad bout this man
Chap is a pure legend,deffo one de soundest in chanel
He was probably the soundest in Chanel. Didnt go on like a priest, down to earth dub.
Looks like the demon headmaster, but he's a good guy.
Indeed a Chanel legend. Strict but very fair sums up Fr. Hand very well. CC would have been lost without him.
The disturbing overtone of strickness/harshness which is a hangover frm religious practices is quite off putting.Somewhat Old School.
A living legend. Someone said tough but fair. Well he's the defination of that well worn phrase. Can be as cutting as a gullotine, but sheer class.
A brilliant man. always had time to listen to any problems anyone had. he a fair man. he always let me go home to chanel my chanel tracksuit,,,,excellent
very helpful perfect princable good luck in the future wat ever your doing
Hope every thing goes well 4 him in june cause he will be throughly missed! A very nice man. "U14's Gaeilge"
Good principal. Fair and listens to any problems. Open minded.
Pope JP will have his French irregular verbs down to a tee in no time.
What can I say about John Hand ?? enigmatic, forthright,witty, a born leader.he all things to all men. A living lenend. Chanels loss will be the Vaticans gain..
10 times better than father Dooney. Listens to the students and sorts out problems. Good luck in the future when he leaves in july!!
