Was very sad to hear about Mr E. I think he will be fondly remembered by all of his students. Both he and Mr Cooke (with their vastly different teaching styles) started me on a path to post-grad studies in medicine/science. I remember fondly that he never ridiculed, never denigrated or alienated any student in his class, regardless of ability. He only asked for interest, attention, enthusiasm and mutual respect, while never raising his voice. Eccentric, entertaining and thoughtful.
Fantastic man. I was inspired enough by him to get a PhD in biochemistry and currently work as a professor in the US. He even trusted a kid like me with the keys to his lab... say no more.
Came in one day and started playing a guitar. That was the beginning of his nervous breakdown which resulted in a good class being denied a good teacher. A nice man all the same.
Great man, bored a lot of the others, but he inspired my interest in chemistry/science which led to me doing a PhD. Have himself and paul cooke to thank in ways. Wish him well.
What a cool man. Always had time for his students and always took an interest in my guitar playing. heard he got very ill a while back hope he is well.Top Bloke
A good teacher, although only had him for a few months in 5th year before he got very sick. Replacements weren't up to the same standard.
His classes were very boring.But ask him a question and hed help you.Loved when he used to take us to the lab.To be fair he got me a C in Biology.- S Carroll

Mr. Galvin was an excellent teacher and a sound man, the kind of guy you'd love to go for a pint with. He was the reason I became a scientist. Respect DC 90-99

This chap was cool. He was easy to get on with. Not always very clear but the we liked him coz he was cool with us.
