Possibly the most intelligent teacher in the school. Has an answer for EVERY question you ask. Always calm, cool, laid back. Legend
great teacher, entertainer, storyteller and a laugh. What a man.... Some of the wittiest comments ever to come out of a classroom. Made me actually interested in the poetry we were doing!! Ledge
wat a legend of a man hu ha . uh enright that wont cut the mustard ... what a legend ..doc for taoiseach
pushed me very hard and refused to give any of us more than a b for an essay . his help over two years got me a b1 . the man is a legend and 1 the coolest people ever . doc the legend . sub zero cool
Pushed me very hard for two years, pretty much refused to give me As in my essays until 6th year, and ultimately drove me to an A1 in the LC. The guy is easily the most respected person in the school!
Great teacher, if you didnt want class you just asked him a question dat takes half an hour to answer.Feel for it every time ha ha
Left Ardscoil way back in 86 - Doc left a last impression on my career. Top marks.
What he doesn't know about History didn't happen! A scholar and the nicest guy in the world. One of my life-shaping mentors even after 30 years! Rock on Jim. Thanks - J.
the corridors of ArdScoil never inspired me, you did. thanks Doc. 5 5 5
Great teacher and a great laugh cant say a bad word about him even his strut around the corridors
Can keep his composure and air of cool after falling back in his chair or kicking a table. That says it all.
Past pupil here... Doc was the definition of the "Cool English Teacher". But he deserved the tag, because he is genuinely very cool (did I spell "genuinely" correct?). Superb.
Why you are not lecturing will always haunt me.had u this year for enlish,legend and a half.very james deanesque
This man is the sole teacher in that school who could make teaching seem cool.Hes a LEDGEND!Unbelieveably coool guy
Past Pupil. Gr8 to see Jim as respected now as he was 20 yrs ago. Probably the best teacher in the world ever. Living Legend.
gave this man a 3 on easiness because the best teachers always challenge you and this man definetely did that. brilliant.
Extremly knowledgeable, laid back and calm. Don't get on his bad side though. "I can't stop you from being stupid, kid, it's a free country."
Great teacher, if you think he is ccol in class watch him in a pub drinking a guinness, total class should go to hollywood
This was the best teacher in the school. He was the one teacher who could recognise student needs. He rocked
best teacher in the place but he scares the living crap out of me and everyone around him
Never had a university lecturer to match him. An inspirational teacher and brilliant man - A template for everybody in the school to follow.
HE USED TO BE MY FAVOURITE TEACHER BUT HAVING HIM FOR LC HISTORY CHANGED THAT. HE SEEMS TO PREFER TO LECTURE THAN TEACH.HE MAKES IT HARDER THAN IT NEEDS TO BE
fairest teacher i have come across. he is wasting his intellect in a school of ignorance and inequality. should be a lecturer in history deserves more credit
James Dean of the classroom; leaning back in his chair; both fell over; he did not move for a minute and then said,"yeah, the ceiling needs painting."nuff said.
Cool dude but total prat!! knows his stuff but victimises certain students.. bring back COLE!!
Great teacher, too bad I wasn't great at English... and I hated poetry. Cinema Paradiso was a bangin' film - he let us do that for the Leaving Cert.!
They should rename the road
This man was more knowledegable than many lecturers I had at Uni. If all teachers were like him this country would be the better for it.
The Mr. T comment rating was a mistake it should have been 555 sorry
Unbelieveable teacher. The best the school has to offer
Make sure he doesnt find your T.Y.P diary that you havent done in 6 months! He didnt like that!
An excellent teacher who I still remember 10 years on. One of the brightest guys i ever knew.
This teacher is brilliant. Probably the coolest one around AND he can back it up with a HUGE amount of knowledge. The best one around!
Q.What's cooler than being cool? A.Doc. Best qulified and well read teacher in the school. A living, strutting legend.
Doc,the ArdScoil Mr. T.I pity the fool who dont respect the Doc.
The only one left, now that Hunter S. Thompson is no more! thanks doc!
Top teacher wasted at this post should be lecturing at uni
Great teacher, a walking Encyclopedia of English & History, great influence, was even the coolest guy at our Debs (80s), dressed in shades struttn his stuff!!!
What an unbelieveable person. Possibly the greatest person in the entire school/world. So good its scary. What the hell is he doing in our school?
This guy is the stuff of legends! He is the epitome of cool...and what qoutes! Headless Chicken eh!
Great for his one-liners,Witty and incredibly well read and informed.Brilliant teacher and has an air of complete confidence and authority.
The greatest teacher Ardscoil ever had, a legend of the high seas. His fantastic qualities are too vast to mention in one singular paragraph. Teach me 4eva!
Genius, legend, call him what you want - he's the man. The image is impressive but being able to back it up with knowledge and authority is his success
will remain in my memory as one of the coolest, wittiest guys at ard scoil. a living legend, his classes were always something to look forward to
Seriously knows his history,he was our transition yr co-ordinator in its 2nd year of existence.Ive great respect for this man who is so cool he excretesicecubes
"If you wanna take us on thats fine, But you'll lose. You'll lose cause we can't afford to lose!" Made TY interesting.
The man is a genius and he's cool, if the Fonz was a teacher....
cooler than cool this man is a total and utter ledgend only teacher to wear sun glasses and an earing into class again "ledgend"
