As others have said - this man was (& is!) a living legend - inspirational, humorous, eccentric & a tireless hillwalker! The music! Had him in the 80's (not biblically!) and still think of him often..

Spent his 80's weekends thanklessly shepherding us around the Wicklow mountains, and his half-terms taking us further afield. I am forever grateful to this man.

Mr Blackmore was something of a rarity in our school - an English teacher who taught English, rather than how to pass an english exam. Absolutely fantastic.
