Such a lovely person who really understood her students. I honestly miss her classes, even after four and a half years! I never liked English before having her as a teacher, and hated it in fifth and sixth year after her retirement. She always encouraged me and was very objective in her marking. A perfectly wonderful human being and a fantastic teacher.

Total legend, hands down. She taught me 10 years ago, I was a massive pain, she was still amazing towards me. Now a teacher myself I can really appreciate her approach and strength. A very inspiring woman. Not to mention she was the only English teacher who ever made the subject remotely interesting for me. Hope she has a great retirement.

Mrs Barry is a lovely woman, who is very gentle and caring but also like most teachers has a fiery side to her, which is needed with some of the twats in the class. She does mainly focus on the students who are getting on well and who understand everything leave the students who maybe aren't as smart to fall behind.

Laurene Barry is one of the best teachers in Ireland. As a past pupil, who had her for 5 years, and has gone on to teach myself, I can say with all honesty that this woman is one of the greatest examples of strong, independent, intelegent and humourous females, and a great role model for any girl looking to make it in a man's world. And the sarcasm is hilarious if you're not on the wrong side of it. Also, I found her open to religion and religious debates. Cheers, Mrs Barry, you rock.
