Inspirational. Was scared/in awe of him, but he was just and fair. Solid knowledge of what he was teaching, but along the way a certain kind of honour/ethical sense/decency was transmitted in the background. Most other teachers were flawed human beings in comparison. Important to those of us who lacked male role models/fathers. A great teacher. Helped me be a better scientist, and more importantly, a better man. Very grateful to him. We were so lucky to have had him as a teacher.
Whether it was fear or not, I would never have achieved the results I did if not for him and am forever grateful to him for that. Legend.
A master at preparing his students for exams - I took all his subjects for the leaving cert.
In 1st year my whole class was petrified of this man, if u didn't know the answer then it was "up to the board" where u stayed till u got it,haha there was definatley a few ppl at the board for years!
got an A because of Mr. Murphy. What a teacher, brill
Superb teacher at Chemistry. Gives fantastic notes. Helps everybody in the class
There'll be buckets of blood if you fail the leaving!!Of course I only went & got an A1 cos of him. Brill teacher.
This guy was the science king (abit embarassed about teaching biology though). He is the mould all teachers should be set it. A dedicated individual
teaching was the last choice of a lost engineering soul.got great grades in all the sciences,but not because of him.did not appreciate his dictarian method
" who have you now lads" a you sir "o rite ya". sound man looks after his phyics lads we can do no wrong.
The only spud I know who could teach. Some teacher. still using his notes in college.
great teacher, if a bit too hard. makes jack nicholson seem like a wimp
needs to spend more time with slower students.good teacher if he explained it more. were not all bright students.
Good teacher, not much time for "slower" pupils though!
