Jimmy Hegarty was (And is!) an absolute gent and a great football manager.I'd wager anyone who has anything negative to say about about him was/is some sort of nerd.Once again, Jimmy = legened"
A shame he's gone but what a solid teacher. Irish wasn't my best but helped so much. As for his wandering around the class practicing his golf swing... I bet he wished he was teaching that instead!!
jimmy wil go down in our school as one of the best. maybe not for teaching, but as a poet he is great!
Great teacher, and a great community man in Trim also. Saved my otherwise-damned Irish JC. Comedian too... working time! Time for work, kyirk!
Always made time for helpin weaker students class were fun great interest in school sports
We did the same work in 2nd year as we did in leaving cert never used the book
I'm 2 years out of the school, he's the only reason I passed Irish!
