Strict but fair, there was a man always willing to listen under the hard exterior, seemed to respect the seniors and there was a mutual respect back, always liked the man.
From a few altercations with him I formed the impression that he didnt like spirited free thinkers. He very much liked to maintain the dominant - sub servient role as teacher . From my time 'learning ' in his class he made 2 memorable comments to me that i can only describe as very personal attacks that were coming from a place I dont think fell under the educational spirit of teaching. He let there be 'no ambiguity' about how he felt about me.......pure disdain.
I remember Kieran Kenny walking in the first day and writing his name on the board - he then crossed out Kieran and told us we could call him Mr Kenny. I think he got ME and suffered badly for a number of years - nice to see that he recovered and got back teaching - nice guy - i think he married Geraldine Hennessy - another teacher in the school..
