Unusually for Belvo in the 1970s; this guy was a very professional, solid teacher. Didn't let his likes or dislikes get in the way. Clear, straight-forward delivery. Stiff, but occasional gentle witticisms.
partir entrer sortir naitre mourir devenir aller rester venir arriver tomber monter descendre -thanks joe-the three piece suits and platform shoes were always good for a giggle but the guy was solid
Joey Dunne is a true top bloke best story ever was his trip on the train with his dad.
He is a very, very good English teacher! He has a tendancy to ramble on though!
super teacher of french. taught me 29 years ago. got an honour due mostly to him. inspired a love of the lang and cultture that has been lifelong.
He was a good laugh but I think he actually forgot to do the teaching bit in many of his classes. He was always on for a chat or some form of random waffling session.
It is utterly bizarre that this man ever became head of English!
he is a great teacher but he can get angry if you dont hand in your homework in time
Superb teacher. I loved english classes. Loved our trips to the Abbey. Was like a 2nd form tutor to us. Friendly, Helpful, Very Wise.
DONT LEAVE A BOTTLE OF TIP-EX ON YOUR DESK!!! you'll be standing for weeks
"SORRY,wud u mind just..."classical quotes.hilarious,but doesn seem 2 care about teachin nemor."comin'2 class witout a pen's like,playin'a match witout ur boots
Great teacher with a unique way of interupting himself to get to another point... Never lost for words
Brilliant! just rants on and on and loses the plot so easily. good teacher, when he's not making random comments.
'eh sorry, could you take your bag and books and stand at the back of the class' -great storys-charm-great 'huskey' voice
kept me interested in english for 6 years. random comments and great advice such as "You only need two things for an exam, a clear head and dry pants"
teaching ability is very limited, however perhaps the best person for a session ever
doesnt like me.spends way more time reading the paper than actually teaching. obviusly good at french but too lazy to teach it
the great gatsby!! eh get to the back of the class, what a ledgend
Average teacher. Quote"When you are taking your leaving I'll be sitting in a boat fishing in Roscommon laughing, thinking about you in the exam". Charming.
what a hero! "eh sorry now is that your schol jumper?" ask him about the time he had a hit and run with a deer!!
Joey is a class act. He taught me all about life through his English classes. I still quote him 10 years after leaving the best school in Ireland.
Got a B in the inter a long time ago but because I ran amok in transition year (who doesn't) dumped me down to pass. Still took the honours and got a B in leav.
What a ledgend. best teacher i had in the six years. stories are inspirational. "eh sorry!"
an absloute classic,came out with great quotes,such as,"if you have an egg, lay it, and dont be playing handball with it"
joe dunne is the roy keane of teachers. gruff, a bit annoying but always always a class act.
who dosent love this mans random comments. not a man but a giant
Such a gent the chap is one of a kind, he wrote the book as well(thats gotta count for something)
this teacher feels the need to be too controlling at times
