G arrived at my sch'l as I went into 5th year in the 80's and he taught me Irish. Sadly, he was also my form-master, so, time which should have been used teaching, or attempting to change perceptions of the subject (Dublin, Northside, mixed-ability/motivation class), was wasted on disciplinary issues. As I am now an education professional, my view: prone to cynicism/apathy/hostility towards sts; harboured some urban grudge; quick to dislike/dismiss specific sts based on his own lifestyle issues.
he cant control a class he talks to much about things that we shouldnt be learning he disrepects the students
he told me there was never a volcano in ireland... Gerry you were WRONG!
he is one weird teacher always puts himself in the 1st person but a good teacher
ha ahh de stick he use to get off us ha and always put up wit it but sadly hes left and i hate my new history teacher gerry ye ledgend
I found Gerry a great teacher, He has an abundance of time for student's who want to learn and allow's those that could not be bothered to do what they like.
Great teacher,always willing to help students that tried and didn't waste time on students that wouldn't help themselves! i'm a soon to be Dr due partly to this mans advice in irish class!!
i havent learned a thing off gerry no control over a class
His Irish class is like a day at the zoo.Maybe if he had got a degree in crowd control before he came to the school i might of learned some Irish.
Huge Ego alright, maybe he's a bit more comfortable with teaching in dublin now, but he always seemed to have a poor relationship with most of the students. Quality of teaching ok.
Good geography teacher loses the headeasily very hard to understand with the accent
this guy told me id fail irish and i did...so i guess that makes him a good teacher or sorts, anyway class was always entertaining to say the least..
surprised at some comments here.. I thought Gerry Doyle was great. Good laugh and a good teacher - wish there were more like him!
refused to bring our geography class on a field trip because he said he would'nt be seen in public with us. bad form gerry!!
This guy is the best teacher the whole school,thats what i think anyway,his sound!!!
He's a good teacher and definatly knows what he's doing but can sometimes be slightly snobby.no offence to him!!
He hated Kempes, probably because Kempes use to run a muck. Colm Judge
A very dedicated teacher who always had time for us - great memories of the field trip to the sugar loaf!!
great teacher loves the irish language and has time for people who are very willing to work!! had problems at first but i acknowledged my own problems!! T.M.
Great Teacher - wish there were more like him - taught cause he enjoyed it.
Didnt waste time going through the book, focused on exams from day one, good teacher, huge ego.
Had him for Geography.he didnt like us at all.Disappointing coz I always liked Geography.He came across as though he hated teaching. - S Carroll
great teacher. instilled drive. people saying he's a bad teacher just didn't bother to listen to him. he knows exactly whats needed to pass the exams
Developed a superiority complex after 3rd year. Shame as had good potential. DOC
Was a good teacher , Had a few bad days which he took out on classes , Overall i'd say he was one of the better ones
Great teacher.Some people gave him a hard time but those people were idiots.
