It was only years later that I appreciated the way he taught Irish. -On the one hand, the grammar was hell. But in Irish, it is hell. It is so different to English and needs very hard study. -On the other hand, the lengthy interludes where he swung himself between two desks and came out with those old Irish (Kerry) aphorisms, were not just entertaining, but provided an amazing insight into the Irish language and the way you think in it. He is among my most valued teachers that I think of, today.
Hard to believe he is still there 27 years on. Nice guy but not helped by the subject he teaches as Irish is an imposition on most who take it.
best teacher going explains everything if you dont understand it!! sound teacher
bad teacher! doesnt help ya jus gives ya 500 lines each time u get a word wrong!
legend, great teacher. work for him and he will work for you
If it were possible to descibe in Irish how much I did not enjoy this individual's classes in the subject in which he "taught", he would have done a far better job. Appalling teacher.
10,000 lines!!! Get out the line... Learned nothing in the class. Nice guy though, not bad teacher, if you´re up for Irish. Defo lives in the 50´s
Excellent teacher, brought discipline and competition to the classroom
A real gentleman! A great year head...very helpful and supportive!
Very unhelpful, arrogant, agree with comment that he lives in the 50's
Titch is the man...I'll always remember him telling us to "Take out the book Peig"!!!and "Right, out to the line" "100 lines and if you're good I mightletuoff"
Great man.Brought a bit of craic to the classroom, my fine feathered freinds.
leave it out lads. ger is a sound man. ill never forget this legend.
how did he know that my book was actually at home in a glass case and that i threw sugar at it??amazing
Gerry Carley, or "Titch" as I knew him was a sound man, handy at the Judo too by all accounts. Mind you he'd have to be given he is 3ft tall
good teacher. passionate about his subjects. not one to mess with unless you're looking for a dead arm.
