I so regret the hard time I gave this guy, really nice man who genuinely wanted to help and educate people. Sorry John, a couple of years gives one much maturity and in retrospect you took a lot of ab
Excellent teacher, got all the points of the subject across educated not only for the exams but for life. Truly seemed to care if student understood the material and made sure they did.
John you should have a medal for your troubles.An excellent teacher that few at the time realised.If you had any interest in the subject this man would encourage you no end.A real gentleman
A real gentleman....the reason I have a decent job now!
He was not suited to teaching. It was not fair on the students that he persisted with teaching.
A gentleman, Dedicated and committed teacher that would even help the most unruly student. He had a tough time of it at times but never showed it. I want to say thankyou for everything. MQuille lc '97
He was one of the main reasons that I became a teacher. He fostered a love of Economics which I studied at Uni. A real gent!!
What a guy, my favourite class, didn't deserve the abuse, but then it was funny for us at the time, soundest teacher in the school though, sorry when I think back...
How he managed to teach us anything, I don't know. We gave him so much abuse and he still educated us. A warrior of a teacher and one of the best. True gentleman...!!!
Very Genuine helpful guy, i was in the 3C class of 97. Sorry we gve him such abuse, he didnt deserve it. Would love to know who threw that coin though.
3C and the coin incident of '97, what can I say but we deserved a lot more than a day's detention. Still the man must know he is a legend.
A man that was wronged by a lot of us, for that with the site of maturity i am sorry. A man who give all he could and more if he was asked. Got little back, a good man
an absolute gent,lovely man, im sorry if i made life hard 4 u, but at d end of d day, everybody knew u were d nicest, most decent & knowledgeable man dayr was, thanks john
One of the only great and caring teachers at St Micks. It saddened me the abuse you received but I'm proud to say I never took part in that myself.
Gud man.Pity the banter went too far.One of the last remaining gentlemen.
Hope he's still teaching. Should have won awards. Classes were often bedlam, but a lot of learning got done. Very kind to students, even when they screwed up.
Soundest and most helpful teacher I had. I'd love to buy the man a pint. I don't know who threw that coin but I remember we put it to the vote! Ah the memories.
Brilliant teacher and I sometimes feel guilty for some of the messing I did in his class but then I remember how funny some of it was!
The man was a genius. Looked forward to every class. His classes were always informative and entertaining. Wouldn't be where I am today without him. LEGENG!!!
Very good teaher, but couldn't control the class. His determination to tach the subject was outstanding, even with the crowd of messers he usually stood before
Absolute LEGEND in Kerry nevermind Listowel. Everyone has fon memories of John's class. Excellent teacher despite the everyday pandamonium.
by far the best teacher this school ever had. couldn't help you more.pitty he got so much slack, from me too.sorry john.
John was an excellent teacher.I had him for accounting and I couldn't have asked for someone better to teach the subject.
Always loved his class, still don't know how he put up with us cos we gave him loads! Was a fantastic teacher and always gave 110% Go on 3C....
well john you were a great teacher its a pity you ahd to encounter some pups in your time
great accounting teacher- couldn't win with the business classes
John has a heart of gold and it was frustrating when he was taken advantage of by the unruly (which included myself at times!). V. helpful and approachable.
John was a great teacher, except for control. Thought subject extremely well, and 15 years later I still reap the benefits. Gave me exellent advice on career.
Very helpful. Sometimes has problems with undisciplined/rowdy students in his class, but utterly dedicated, very helpful to weak and strong students alike.
