This is something that has bugged my the last decade, mainly because no one, myself included, stood up to him and called him out on it. He once said that, if the priests involved in the recent church scandal weren't gay, then they would not have abused the kids. I really hope he's changed. He seemed like a good guy, who was heavily involved with Opus Dei, and maybe was blinded by his faith.
sound great mighty
If it wasn't for Ger O'Gara I wouldn't be where I am now. I'd love to have a chat with him and thank him for inspiring me and encouraging me in English class. He's a great teacher - a diamond in a mountain of coal.

Excellent teacher, one of the best... English class was always a pleasure; really knows how to educate, rather than just teach.

very impressive english teacher, insightful religion classes, perhaps a little overpowering for some?! stands up for what he believes, genuine.
cool man, always had great craic with him and his fantastic tipp stories!
Disagreed with alot of his opins but had huge respect for him. He discusses his beliefs with you as a peer not a silly student.

This teacher picks his favourites out of the class and god help you if your not one of them!
