Best teacher in my years at Pres, one of the few there I'd call a true pro. Most teachers in Pres brought their personal issues to work, but Murray was there to teach.
Possibly the best teacher I ever had, and a real gent as well
THE absolute best,ever. A gent. Out and out gent. Great attitude,patented smile,superb sense of humour,fantastic teacher and always looked after his students. I did my Leaving in June 2000,and i wouldn't have wanted anyone but himself and Mr McNally handing me my results a few months later. Have seen him quite a few times since,including late 2011. Still the same great man. Unbeatable.
what can i say. just....a wonderful wonderful person.a gentleman.a great help.a crackin sense of humour. fantastic teacher and principal. handed me my Leaving results in 2000 with his patented smile!
Mr. Murray - rightly deserves all accolades. Very priviliged to have him from 85 -90. Our class narrowly lost a bet to him. If we averaged a B he'd shave his beard! Better person for knowing Mr Murray
Best teacher I had, great command of a classroom, insight seeping out his ears.
The nicest, tolerant,great humour and really encouraging teacher. Very few of them around these days.A credit to the job.Thanks Jim!
Great English teacher, he got me hooked on reading because of that book ‘Rumble Fish’. Feel sorry for all his recent troubles, really nice genuine chap.
Perfect teacher best i ever had absolute gentleman wish more were like him
what a great man. brilliant teacher and principal, and get on with. was a pleasure to get my leaving cert results handed to me by him 5 years ago.
had jim all through school for english and math he was alegendand for him to be principal and hand me my results very aprropriate. Thanks JIm
I had Jim for 3rd 5th and 6th for English. Up to that point I truly hated English, Jim recognised that I had an acute learning difficulty and help me work through it. I truly love
Jim taught me from 1979 to 1981 1st year to 3rd year english and wish there were more like him, he was firm but very fair,actually really enjoys teaching.
