Joe Dennehy is without a doubt one of the most inspirational English teachers. He was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic, one of the rare teachers who was actually passionate about what he taught. The English department must be suffering greatly without him. Couldn't have got an A1 without him........ Leaving Cert Class 2007
The man is a hero!! i'd give anything for 1 more english class with Joe!! He hated us till 6th yr tho!!!
Only two pupils were not getting grinds in the A class. He was a nice teacher but just didn't cover the work necessary for those wanting to achieve high points.
Mr Dennehy was an extremely enthusiastic and dedicated teacher who made english classes a pleasure. Always had something different to catch and keep our attention. A born teacher -- Leaving Cert 2006.
i cant believe he's leaving im in serious leaving cert trouble without him :(
ill miss him so much, he is the coolest man that ever lived.. ill miss you so much:D
I can't believe he is leaving da skool :( i going to miss him he is such a legend
great teacher. will be hugely missed, hilarious how any negative comments are written by people who can neither spell nor punctuate. Lost causes at primary school I'd say so CKSS had no chance.
im gonna miss him so much when he retires :( the best teacher i'v ever had!! he is AMAZING!
have the left the school a few years now but thought he was brilliant! i still remember all my french!
Did LC in '92, cant believe JD's still bigheaded + sarcastic. But in fairness 2him, I was brill at German+Irish but strugglin @French (due to previous teacher), 2yrs of JD got me B1, now a translator!
he's a great teacher probly one of d best. But he's really full of himself and can b really mean for no good reason.
Hes very mean somtimes funny makes you feel small and is offencive!
words aren't enough, he is in a class of his own. other teachers would do well to learn from him.
oh chillax!hes really helpful and an immensly intelligent man!!!
A wonderful teacher and a gentleman I have the greatest of respect for this man
I love this man...Joe you are an absolute Legend.ignore everyone else...i think you are a master.Got an A in french cos of you...no one else...im now doing law in french in UCC..
Has favourites and doesn't know I exist. Not that I'm complaining, mind you! Can get very nasty, too. Not one of my best teachers!
Tries his best but should plan less and teach more!throw away the filofax mr D!
It's Mr Dennehy - all i can say is any english teacher is gona have a hard time trying to reach his standard - he's one of the best!
He's the best English teacher ever! He's well organised, intelligent and we all loved when he went off on his tangents! You're brilliant Joe!!
Extremely fair brilliant teacher who genuinely does his best for his students - always goes the extra mile without being asked - it's appreciated! thanks sir!
Spent more time organising and flicking through filofax than teaching. Think he may need a refresher course in teaching
AN ARROGANT MAN WHO SPENDS MOST OF THE CLASS HUMILIATING STUDENTS AND LOWERING THEIR SELF-ESTEEM INSTEAD OF TEACHING THE CLASS.
Atrocious teaching methods,resents inherited classes,makes french class eng=not helpful. Insulting. Spent a whole year on translation. No writing skills taught.
Legend teacher. One of the coolest in CKSS. Not only a great teacher but a legend of a man.
Had him for english from the year he started to leaving cert. Great teacher. Gave me great confidence!!Thanks Joe!
had Mr. Dennehy for english he was tough but it paid off. i was RUBBISH at english but he really did help me to pull up my grades. Thanks!
A very nice man but needs to concentrate on helping the class along, rather than leaving everything to us,our own devices. We need direction and help....please.
You don't learn any french in his class.And he laughs at his own jokes for the whole class. There not funny !!!!
joe, im using the methods u thought me to use for my 5 yrs with u to study for my finals this may.u are the greatest teacher ever,never give up your fantastic
as a past pupil i still remember how gr8t he was-so smart& very interesting.my fave teacher tho he'd never have guessed it.he taught me so much.keep it up!
ignore everyone else sir-I think ur great!!!You taught me a lot-ill always remember you!
Wonder if he's realised that all his students are gettin grinds!awful teacher but nice man!
I had him for english - intelligent person who gave me more food for thought than almost any other teacher there - thank you
A lovely man. He didnt just teach me English and French, he taught me so much more, about politics, history, geography and life. Thank you!
Not the best teacher, doesnt understand the needs of his french students
Could be more inclusive in class, not just his pet students
Needs to concentrate on the struggling students. Not all fluent French speakers.
Judgemental and prone to treating students unfairly that he dislikes personally
thought he was a bit tough 2 begin with but once u stop irritating him,hes actually kinda funny+u can c hes a nice man at heart
