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!Learnt alot from him!your booked!Has a gorgeous daughter too!
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.
This man rocks. Gave me gems of wisdom I still live my life by over 15 years on.
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
never explains things and thinks hes funny all the time when hes not. NOT A GOOD TEACHER EITHER
such an amazin person i dont kno wat i wud hav done withou him
funny teacher, though a bit unclear and unhelpful and unfair. Makes you write out a chapter for breathing too loud. but very cool and funny
Terrible teacher. Funny guy. Know I'm going to fail art. Just know
He is funny but gives you a chapter to write even if you are in line wrong
funny guy but totally condescending and cant teach, good artist though
I came into Clonkeen being terrible at Art.With the help of him I have got 3 B's and One A in the past few Christmas and Summer Exams.This man should also be a comedian.Hilarious
only teacher in clonkeen thats worth writin on the internet about. hope everyone likes the tony the tiger i left on the art room wall.
the best teacher in the world.total legand.funny, funny, funny guy
Makes all the class laugh at the same time and doesn't care like the other teachers<if you do laugh>. Cool Teacher!!!11one! C:
"Now, I'm not going to book you. I'm going to let you book you"
A Great Teacher-made Art fun even for those who were no good at Art
You dont realise just how sharp this guy was until after you've left.Fantastic teacher;great wit.Credit him with whatever sales i make. Deserves a spin.
Mr.O'Donoghue was the best teacher I ever had. He was happy, positive, and a constant source of encouragement.
10 out of 5 and I was better at art than maths. Seriously I wanted to learn and he though very well.
this man inspires students, pity I can't draw or I would hav taken his class
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!
best teacher i ever met "just do it" and "a happy first year is a working first year" are just some of his sayings
Most condescending person I've ever met. Thinks he's charismatic but really just trys too hard!
Has a tough job because of the ridiculous policy of everyone having to do art. I know I had no interest in Art
can outwit a 14 year old. Really impressive reggie!!!
What a cool guy! "I'm not going to book you.....I'm going to let YOU book you"
Didnt like him when i had him for JC but he is sound now. Hates 1st years and its funny to see him slad them. He is funny and genuine. Good bloke
This teacher is funny but never helps you and is very unclear. If he was a bit more helpful he would be a good teacher
man rocks, my favourite teacher and the funniest no doubt, never gets angry, will always make u laugh regardless
Best teacher in the school.Redgie is always thier to help and to encourage you
Great teacher,and very supportive,always has time to help.
good teacher, but is he a reformer or a mainstramer....
i owe this teacher so much.He has realy helped me in life.He makes you think about things so much clearer.thanks man.Regemister Rocks
redgie is a legend... makes school so much more funny and encourages each student to the max....absolute genius
He is the ultimate teacher and always has time for you
