JJ taught me in 1979. He was a good teacher and a good "people person" - although he still has to return a vintage woodworking book he confiscated from me in 1979. If he wants to return it, I've got swinging doors, a juke box and a bar stool, and I'm always here at home in The Traders, or The Pines, till closing time.
Talks the talk (badly) and walks the walk with a limp- but not a bad teacher he does his best for anyone willing to work.
Had JJ in the 1990s for Woodwork sound man, next time in Dublin JJ we will have to have a pint

Everything you don't want to be when you're over 30 never mind 40.He's obviously intelligent but he makes Beckham seem articulate.
