A lot of the negative reviews are from first years that don't understand what a legend this man is. he's retired now but the two years I had him for art were the best art classes of my life. New teacher is kind of a stick in the mud and got rid of all the artwork he had students put up in the room

The art room was perhaps the only room within that trash heap the actually felt like what a class room should feel like. A good man and a voice of reason amogst the continuous avalanche of sport or academic themed crap that spawns from the school. Clonkeen will be a sad place when Mr O'Donoghue leaves..z

Great teacher. Great man. Listen to him and he will leave you enlightened. I can always think back to something he said and still learn from it.

Great comedian. Brilliantly funny. Very helpful once you ask the right questions. Every one seems to hate art in first year though.

Great teacher, I still remember a joke he told the class over ten years ago about a condominium (I think it went along the lines of "a prophylactic for small people"). People moan about him being condescending but I think he would do the opposite, he talk the same way with us as he would with adults, but as twelve-year-olds we weren't really able to appreciate it.

any bad comment about this man has obviously been left by a first year, a very adult sence of humour and a philosopical man. great views on life and if you act mature he'll give you much respect

How can people like this man? Totally condescending. Does not teach anything. If you are good at art, go to another school or get good at cheating.

Stonnie from the early 70s. Humour and wit at the highest level - it would take a "special student" to miss this guys appeal. Rock on man!
