Very good and sound Irish teacher but does favour a few individuals.
best teacher going
My least favorite teacher EVER.. He picks on a certain few throughout the year, sits there pretending he can teach, calls himslef the best teacher in the school, wastes our time in class making us translate our whole irish book for no apparent reason.. i wud rather teach myself irish.. shudnt even be a teacher
I hate this man, hes a prick and has no clue about irish. unless ur on da sports team, he hates ya
He is the funnyist man goin e actually makes irish not so bad always there to crack an ould joke :).....
gives lots and lots of homework but gives you weeks to do it!
Sound man, glad i had him for the 5 years, gr8 teacher.
SOUND !gud craic in class,bt wen e getz serious ...watch ursef
sound man. brought me up from failing irish to getting b's or A's in all his tests! and hes a great crack in class aswell
Fun teacher and a good laugh, might have taught us something if he tried, but he didn't. Very lazy
bates is a sound man. Great teacher and always had an eye for morgan.
Rock on Holy Faith love yas xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
sound but lazy wants us all to pay 680 euros to go to irish college
bates is a funny and sound man good for a laugh and doesnt have time for messers
Good teacher gives some homework do loves himself as well
A riot,loved his sense of humour.Remember when he first arrived on the scene it was like john wayne arriving into a new town,spreading fear.and it worked!
yep have to say got on well with him developed a gra for the teanga only in his class.
Good teacher and no one should say he is a bad teacher. I bet all those who rated him badly were the ones who were to lazy anyway and just woudn't co-operate.
Very laid back but is a brilliant teacher, only time I improved at Irish was in his class.
like a big bro, lazy. if he teached wed all get A's. GOOD STUFF!!!
doesn't give homework on a regular basis instead gives a lot of work usally around the holidays and thinks he's the best irish teacher in the school.
Brilliant Irish teacher. Put the fear of god into students to make them learn. Effective too. Very sound outside of school too.
Great man! I was terrible at Irish but he helped through the LC! Love the language now thanks to him!
Mixed emotions for Kev! He is a decent caring guy...i guess i was lucky that he liked me...teaching was wher he fell down!
A difficult teacher to continuaously get along with. Much favouritism in class, but gives a sense of having no genuine respect for students. A competent teacher
Sound man, made us do the work, but who ever liked irish. Defo a good teacher
sound teacher......... but mothers and sisters beware!!!
Is ait an mac an saol, ach tír gan teanga, tír gan anam,mar sin - mol an oige & tiocfaidh si. Go raibh maith agat as ucht do tacaiocht trid is trid a Chaoimhin
had mr bates in the class of '99.his energy levels seem quite low, he could have more enthusiasm for his subject.he tends to ignore the weaker students in class
Excellent teacher - I would say to all the Nay-sayers "is minic a bhris beal an duine, a sron"
biggest mistake school made was when he had to change teaching our l.c a few years ago,no point to it..great teacher..laid back but always knew when to work!
so lazy but good craic, can be very good teacher at times, other times i'm not so sure
Bates is one of the best teachers in the school.Hes defo the best irish teacher!!
