Once made us have a whip-round in class for a lad who had forgotten his book! and emptied the pennies from his own pocket onto the desk! A legend! A scary legend!!!
He told me to was a bowl in the lab in 1979. I didn't do it properly and there was a mini explosion. He didn't miss a beat...lads as demonstratedthese two chemicals react violently. Super guy, genuine
best teacher by far predicted my L.c results in 1st year to within 10 pts
"the folder!!!!, remember the folder!!!!"....a legend in his own lifetime
AH, AH, Shut your cake-hole!! I've been here for 40 years!! That man made me laugh more than anyone else and getting kicked out of class was worth it!!
Terrifying man, but hilarious to boot. The whole school probably still recounts his hilariously delivered advice on onanism.
A legend of a teacher, "Mr O' Sullivan, sir....MR PORTLAOISE!, Mr O Sullivan.... MR PORTLAOISE!!!!! etc(louder and louder)"
Absolute Diamond!!!One of his best quotes - "Agh!! Get your old man down here till I fight him."
I'd say he was great in The National School !!An absolute legend and drilled the work into every student..Teddy,Bunny and squirrely and Ikey Reilly ?!?!?
Gave me a love of science and made me look forward to his class. Mad in the nicest possible way. Am a scientist now 'cos of him. :o)
I did my leaving in 1984 and Larry was already established then. A great educator and a fine human being.
I was one of the lucky ones i only ever had him for religion. The best class ever, taught u more about life than any other class in 6yrs.
Terrifying beast of a man, white coat supported more organisms than his petri dishes. Still, excellent, excellent educator and (when not enraged) very nice man.
Legend! saw him the other day on the street-still looks as angry as ever but probably still great craic!
Greatest Character and Teacher. Great Loss to the school.
The real Pres Larry thought me science for 6 years.The greatest character and teacher.
I did my leaving in 1993, Larry is a legend. I have many fond memories of him, dont get me wrong, he is a excellent teacher. Keep those folders tidy!
only had him in first year, gave me my love of history and latin. absolute legend, excellent teacher.
An absolute madman, but an absolute legend. If you didn't have Larry or Bro Tim, you didn't go to Pres, and you don't know what real fear is.
had him for a day in first year and he was sound,other than that only know what my bros told me.they said he was a legend and a great teacher
Taught us as much about life as school, great teacher!
