The only teacher I had for each of my 5 yrs in Carraig. Had him for JC science and for physics & maths for LC. Can honestly say that I found him brilliant. He' s funny in class while getting loads of work done. Always found him extremely helpful & giving of his time to everyone. My experience is that he explains everything very thoroughly too. Think Mr Greally is one of the most dedicated teachers in Carraig - always got involved with students too entering them in competitions etc. A legend.
Mr Greally taught all 3 of my children and he was a fantastic help to them all. A very dedicated and caring teacher. He has high standards and gets brilliant results. All of my children did very well in his science maths and physics classes.
waste of time. dont bother asking him Q,s as he either ignores you or explains it in the most confusing way possible.your better better off getting a maths tutor.
As said before "the use of the projector is not proper teaching." I have never heard such a true statement relating to him. From him, all I have learned is that 'if you want something done, do it yourself' Doesn't give students an understanding, and tends to be really creepy. Other than that he is a very friendly and energetic person, just think he should be working with people his own age.
he is a legend of a teacher one of my fav teachers while i was in 5th and 6th year
It's been a long time since I was in Carrig, but Jimmy was one of the best teachers I knew there. Very engaging, brought your right in, and clearly demonstrated that physics is something to be experienced and not merely lear
got an a in my junior cert thanks 2 myself, not jimmy. Tends to overdo projector work but sound enough outside class if you give him a chance, unfortunately not many students do.
uuuugh red biros rulers jimmy g da best a class can get
1 of da ppl said below said he embarrasses u in front of da whole class!!! So true!!!! Nd write write write........ we don care bou being organised nd tidy!!!!
shockin teacher all u do is write down from a projector. dosent explain n e ting!
Bit tough on science but a good laugh outside the class"
He was always sound to me but hes bit obsessed with the old red pen and ruler and does give out alot of homework, outside of class nice guy.
Jimmys a good lad and a great teacher...had him back in the day and he couldnt have been more helpful...cheers jimmy.
He gives too much homework,Hes out very often but he is good laugh and a good teacher
great laugh but not a great teacher just makes us write and write from a projector and waste time on rulers and red biros
not a great teacher but very very nice and great laugh
Only had him for 1st year science but i got a B in honours in my JC. Though he was an excellent teacher!
Can't believe you. Jimmy Rocks! Got a B in hons physics, back in the '80's - had a lot of craic in class. Did lots of extracurricular stuff. Brilliant n friendly. He's a gent!
He get easily annoyed, and wastes time needlessly. Not very approachable if you cannot understand him, and sometimes expects too much from the student.
Didnt like him. The amount of time that was wasted cos someone forgot a red biro. Over the top and arrogant
Jimmy is a legend... superb extraordinary teacher.. he is the man
He told me do ordinary level when doin my leaving But got c1 in honours. Loses it alot. Ok teacher.
Very arrongant. He said I didnt deserve his tesching!!! He told me do ordinary level in junior cert. I got a B at honours.
A guy who puts in an effort to be friendly and helpful- only you must do the same.
I think he is an excellent physics & science teacher. Spends lots of time preparing his classes very well. Expects us to work hard also, but he's very fair.
Very good teacher, if you stay on the right side of him! luckily I currently am.
