Loved loved loved The John's class.. the best laughs I had in Scoil Damhnait were definately in Latin class with him loosing the plot!! Many a day I spent the class on my feet!
By far the funniest classes were with The John!The amount of times I had to stand up because my translation was brutal..it was worth it,the best teacher ever!!
Excellent teacher, he had us reciting latin history and ecce romani in our sleep
One of the best teachers I ever had, great fun hard working and totaly dedicated to the cause and his students. An inspiration and an example to all.
John is excellent he is so dedicated and a pleasure to have been thaught by.
honest, decent man...best time in the world for him..Definately the best teacher in the school,everyone loved him. but not his sentences so much..
Quite an angry Cork man.. many many problems... wanted to through me out window, we had a rocky relationship.
The best craic of a class ever! Always pushing you to do your best. Threw me out so many times for sentences, history, the lot but I still loved him!
I'll never forget The John,he was the best teacher ive ever had, may the lord look down on ya if ya havnt got those sentances done..
Best teacher i've had- did the best with the materiel he had!! had a laugh
Gotta love auld Johno. He could tell a tale and had some way endearing way of being archaically crude. the last of an old lot, at least he had a sense of humour
"Ye blessed swines" and various other quotes apply. He got more A's than on countdown, gotta respect that. I had good time for the man.
"I'll break your blessed head for ya" love this man with lasting affection, as do generations.Who else could make you love latin?!He really is a living legend.
