Y'na, Y'na, Y'na - I can still see the spectre of JV with hood of the duffel coat pulled up standing at the front door, greeting mopey students at 9am. A gent.
"Help me to help me" and lots of examples involving 'widgets' (still haven't found out what they are 20 years later. Top dude though and loved the football.
Joe is an institution in Patrician. I think he was around before the college was built! Was career guidance in my time (LC 1980). A great and dedicated man!
transmitted a genuine love of classical music ,especially the violin...
Top man Joe. Always genuinely cared about those in his charge. Always called me by my brother's name.
Ah, Joe, - Not Barley, not farrelly, but Varley. Just a super individual. Taught me bookkeeping 20 years ago. Still have good memories.
Well, ehhhh...Ya_know!! Sound guidance teacher..Ya_know!! Will, ehhhh...buy him a pint if I see him again..Ya_know!!
Well kinda we say you know Joe was a great guy even if i couldnt understand a word he was saying.
Joe is cool and has some great sayins "1,2,3, take a step back now". He never gets a name right not even with teachers. Great bloke

Joe taught me from 1969 to 72 and never got my name right. Was the coolest then - great to see that age hasn't diminished his laid back style!!
