Human calculator, awesome teacher
The best..ever !!!! A legend of a man, who cared deeply about his students. Though you didn't realise it till you left !!Thanks Joe.
fast paced teacher - have to be smart to keep up!!! great teacher!
An absoulte legend. Excellent teacher. Old school in his approach, but knew what he was doing
Taught me in 88 and 89. Wont be where I am today with out Joe. He tried to throw me out in 88 but I wont leave . I knew if I would me down at least 2 grades.
I had the privilege of Joe's teaching for 6 years in the late 70s. An outstanding teacher. Never a dull moment in class. Gave great notes breaking the most complex maths into easy bits. SUPERB MAN.
Greatest teacher I've ever had and that includes all the way through Uni. Always remember his brilliant ability and wit. Taught those who wanted to be taught. Wish i'd more space..
What a man!!! Gave up his lunch (and ours too) to bring us up to speed. I'll always be grateful
OLD SCHOOL!! 3 times, sit down you wretch! wretched boy. ur only here for the heat. stop trying to escape out the window (1st floor). 6 times,sit down.100 lines
Old skool teacher. still managed to get the best out of me as much time as i spent outside the door. unforgettable
The man was a legend, uncompromisingly tough, but a thorough gentleman, and a brilliant teacher. Some hilarious moments over the years
A great Maths teacher. 6 of the best or six months in jail was a favourite quote of his . Should have been a Maths professor. Better than any I ever encountered.
will never forgive him for the brian and my maths book incidents! good teacher though
Despite most of my work being described as "tripe". Joe dragged me through Honours Maths. A genuine gentleman with a great wit. Thanks for everything. C'mon Utd
Still owe this man lines. I enjoyed his theorem classes and the bit of banter. Excellent teacher and great personality.
a wonderful teacher and guy. up there with the great Phil McGinn of Cork. They only made of him. A model for all other teachers in the Academy. Look and learn!
Excellent teacher, new the course like the back of his hand and knew how to teach it. If only other teachers were as good.
An outstanding Maths teacher. Up there with the best. Would never have attempted LC honours if it wasn't for him. What I learned from him is still with me.
excellent teacher. sh'up. take a hundred. no agricultural talk.
Wonderful English teacher. Very good at Shakespeare.
An inspiration! Trademark - "Our father Rae...Justin Rae"! A Classic!
He had a way wit words. Helped me get an a in honors englis.
