A chap of immense wisdom, never had him a teacher, but helped me out with any questions that I had. This is a very wise man, I am still inspired by this words 25 years later. Also one of the few teachers that treated you like a person.

Mr. Byrne is a highly intelligent man who inspired in me an interest in history and English. He has his pets though. He'd be more suited to 3rd level teaching.
