Kennedy was the best teacher I had he was kind helpful and easy to work with.On 8/1/18 he passed away along with Fr Joe Brennan and the school was in great shock.May he rest in peace.
A true teacher, perhaps his disbelief in the leaving cert seemed like an inconvenience to us at times but now I see that his lessons were far more important than any exams we ever did. Gonzaga will never be the same. Rest easy Kenno, we really will miss you. Live the fourth.
There are no words to articulate Kennedy's loss. He was the heart of Gonzaga College SJ. His students always came first, they knew he was there for them. My sons are devastated. Rest in Peace. We will miss you.
Fr Kennedy made me feel very welcome when I came to the school and I always enjoyed talking with the man. Feeling privelaged to have been able to catch up with him 10 Years on at a reunion dinner at Christmas where he was in marvellous form. A total shock to hear of this tragic news. RIP kenno
A wonderful role model for the boys. He made it "ok" to be outside the rugby clique in the school. He encouraged ALL aspects of education and showed me as a parent how to respect my son's opinion and attitudes. The world is a poorer place without you Kennedy. RIP
Kennedy was the best teacher in Gonzaga College. The school will never be the same after this. He was iincredibly learned, great at teaching, and easy to approach. But above all, he was a good man.
He found good in everyone and treated them with the utmost respect, he will be greatly missed
Gonzaga will never be the same without you.I'm so glad my son knew you for three years,I just wish it was longer.
May you rest in peace.
Requiscat in pace
Thank you for everything, Kennedy. Rest in peace.
I'm actually a contemporary and colleage. Like so many brothers in the Lord . Am seeing many passing into the Lord . Saddened to hear of his loss
goes far beyond what is expected of any teacher, educating the man not just the student. he was always there to offer advice where it was asked for, or just to listen if that was all you needed, a true gentleman.
probably the nicest teacher in the school and very interesting, never does boring classes
Fr Kennedy O Brien is a wonderful man. He is wonderful with young men. He understands them, His pupils can talk to him in confidernce. Keep up the good work
Helped immensly in settling in to gonzaga. we had our ups and downs but is a friend foremost and then a teacher
A former pupil of the great 'Keno' will inevitably immortalise this great English teacher as James Joyce once did. I have great memories of this erudite educator.
digital versitial disc-need i say more as the fella says.
Great teacher but the world's biggest spy. Will tell Potts about EVERYTHING. Lovely man but he let me down
Is it natural that someone should be apparently perfect in every way?
A wise, intelligent and natural teacher; best in the school.
as an old Belvederian he was one of the best teachers!!! I think he would have prefered to be moved to England though...
Such a great guy for so many reasons. Truly inspiring. Really one of the best teachers/priests ever.
Nicest person and best english teacher I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Couldn't possibly be a bigger legend if he tried - KENNO FOR POPE!!!
Charismatic Kenno's popularity masks his faults.He teaches english as a quasi religious subject & has a dangerously cavalier attitude to the LC
Priest of the year. He loves teaching, knows his stuff and is always fair. He gets results too.
The most wise man in the school.An excellent teacher,who taught me all i know about english.A brilliant man.
i think this man is overrated and can make some harse opinions on people
One of the few people who really "taught" me, Great man and priest even if he does have some odd notions about the monarchy!
Class act and great teacher. Anyone who doesn't like him is a scoundrel.
Teaches not so much lessons in English as lessons in life
I wouldn't agree; very stuborn and cricket and England are not the best things in the world!!!
absolute king! - one person i would go to if i had a big problem
He is without a shadow of a doubt the greatest man ever need i say more
sound but dont get on his bad side. coolest preist i've ever met
Best teacher in the school really nice and the coolest priest ever
A splendiferous teacher whose love for the English language is second to none.
Extremely helpful teacher and I have no doubt that the things I have learned with him will stay with me for a long time
