Great teacher, my favourite.. scary but so nice at the same time
I enjoyed the classes and developed a great interest in english. He has the rare qualities of being a very nice guy whilst being a serious hothead. -great teacher
very professional with a genuine interest in the students
Hands down the best teacher I've had. I've always loved English and this guy, with his passion and unrelenting determination for each and every student is truly jaw dropping. An inspiration.
He is the coolest teacher EVER. love when he screams at other ppl and love his new drawing pad
great man! but you dont wanna get on his bad side. he is actually a nice guy and he really knows what he is on about ! legend
Had the privilege of being in Sparkys first class in 87. We nicknamed him Sparky cos he was initially so quiet. Only later did sparks fly! The irony of it all. CLASS ACT.
Good teacher. Wicked temper. Although you have to wonder how 'cool' he can be if he didn't recognize someone passing off the lyrics of 'Stand' by REM as their own poem.
gr8 teacher helpful controls the class and gives gr8 notes
The reason I'm studying English at Trinity.Undeniably the best teacher I've had to date.I pity the first years though because he tends not to like you until 4th year.Which is fair enough really.
brillient all round gr8t teacher praises you when you deserve it and bites your head off if you deserve it
Without a doubt the BEST teacher in CUS and only Fitzer and VinyMac can are in his class as a true gent
this teacher could shout for ireland but he totally rocks at teaching!
Angry man, a very angry man, excellent teacher though
high maintanence he is a total skits and were talking totally here but he is a great teacher and if your lucky enough to get him you wont want to miss a class.
superb teacher doesnt give up on any students and truly inspired me.
an absolute gentelman so helpful and friendly. doesnt get the respect he deserves from other teachers and staff.
Great teacher- I'm not sure about him on the ski slopes though. Seemed to be afraid to go down he steep ones.
great teacher just brilliant. trys to get the best out of all the students and always does.
One of the most inspiring people i have ever met. His interest in his subject and his dedication to his students makes you want to work. Top class
AWESOME man. A king among men!!!! Get him to do the yearbook again. When he stopped it got crap
his nick name is sparky and trust me he lives up to his name. brilliant teacher and is very helpfull.
Very Cool and if you dont agree you should shoot yourself
The only man who could occasionally match Tonge in the shouting stakes. But what an absolutely brilliant teacher!
Great teacher. Puts in a lot of work for all those who are willing to work. Best English teacher in the country.
Fab Teacher. His passion for his subject is truely shown in his classes. Takes interest in every student.
best teacher i ever had, he made it all so easy. harsh at times, but fair!!!
Truly brilliant teacher, passionate about his subjects, and giving of his time. Selfless, approacheable, and with that legendary Sparky roar. And a true gent.
the best teacher i ever had.although i hope my impression of him in the balloon debate went down well.thank you man
my god what a legend of a teacher, works you hard but makes it seem easy at the same time
what a legend. makes english interesting , despite the temper (which is often hilarious)
What a legend! English would be at a loss without him. has the respect of every student.
Absolutely outstanding teacher.... and what a roar!!
possably the best teacher ever, i would not have had the interest i have now in enghlish were it not for him
What a teacher.He could really wake somebody up with that scream but probably the best teacher Ive ever had.
A great teacher. With seemly little work i got an A in honours geography. Also a genuinely nice guy, very approachable
very figity, had him as a class head in 4th year, and for drama. He put me on the stage, on me own.. never did that before, have done 100s of times since. tnx!
Excellent teacher, I had him for junior cert English 2 years ago. Really makes English interesting.
definitely a good teacher but maybe wired to the moon a wee bit - probably could have controlled his temper better!
I was in sparkys class in 1987,his first year teaching at cus..im delighted to see so many pupils feel the same as me about this terrific teacher..
An excellent teacher. Never forget the day he caught me squarely between the eyes with a bit of chalk for talking. Didn't need to be told twice.
By far the best teacher (and skier !!) in the school ! Puts across messages and teaches in a way that makes you want to never leave his class. Thanks Mr. Doyle
Absolute amazing teacher!!! teachs english in a way that inspires!!
EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT teacher and really nice guy. All's forgiven for that Irish song you made me sing *lol*
great teacher great geography notes seemed like and alround good guy short fuse though + he always did a great job on the school plays
great teacer dedicated always made an effort also was able to scare the crap out of you
he was simply the best teacher i ever had.everyone agrees, possibly the best teacher ever
Excellent teacher, helped get me a B in the junior cert exams.
