had jim carberry 4th 5th and 6th year for english did my leaving cert 1993 and passed great teacher great days
Top man, managed to get honours with guys who took ordinary level in all other subjects. A teacher in a different class ;)
oh i remember the days!! used 2 hate his class. got lazy as the years went on and he never let me forget it good overall
i remember in our first class he made us stand for the whole thing. Great teacher tough at first but lightened up as we got older. thanks Jim!..eh..i mean Sir!
he was a hard man in a hard school and its what we all needed.
Quoting Paulie "When Mr.Carberry was young, everything was black and white" what does that say?does it say "crash"?He's a good teacher, a bit harsh, and no soul, yea....that's it.:)
he will push you hard ,but the result will show in the end ,a fantastic teacher ,its a pitty i didnt realise until i hit the real world .
big jim could scare the pants off a docker but a gent and a great teacher had him right threw school
quality teacher,best teacher in brunner by far.was a bit scary up til 3rd year,but after then an influence.had his moments of comedy aswell oul bluebeard
good old jimmy, i think the fact the geography book was written by him got to his head a bit, but in all fairness a great teacher
Carberry hes a legend my year head two years ago told me hed have me drawing all the maps in his room but overall a great teacher
I went to de institute+carberry is prob de scariest teacher in de school hes a good teacher but a complete psyco(de quite type)sounds like a different person in this school
Tell me - where do the lines of latitude meet? At the Anna Livia Fountain????? Mr. Carberry your gas and a good teacher
Gave me nightmares & sleepless nights. Would never have achieved pass in geography or history without him. Has written 2 books & is now with institute of educat
Nice bloke under all the "strictness". Used to pick his ear with a key if I remember correctly.
"I'll hang you from that window sill by your toe nails",Brilliant quote If you respect him and be honest he will be the best ally you will ever have.
He is still there ? Can't understand how this individual can be rated "good" - he put me off geography for life ! Still, in my case, it was A Long Time Ago.
"Do you want to stand in the yard with the pidgeons" Classic
Although he kept me outside his classroom for the best part of 6 months I found him to be an excellent teacher.
KILLER CARBERRY.VERY GOOD TEACHER BUT PICKS HIS NOSE TO MUCH
power & fear was his method, not to everyone's liking, good teacher all the same.hope he's stopped picking his ears with his car keys!
He's good buthe repeats the same things over and over
Without doubt one of the best teachers possible in ALL aspects of Geography. Controls more by appearing to be strict than by actually being strict.
Yes he was firm but also fair I think and in the centre of Dublin he was what a few of us needed to keep us on track. I respect the man and think he was good.
U liked me but i have no respect for BULLYS, thats what u are, and quite unkept, VPTP 92/93 :)
This guy is a classroom bully and I gather is not particularly nice to his fellow teachers either.He will not teach anything other than physical geography
Great teacher, very knowledgeable in his subject, very interested in his students, always got good results. Even the most unruly students always paid attention!
Deadly teacher.. Drills it into you, and dont forget about the burren and glacial erosion..
