Inter cert science 1986. Brilliant teacher scared the hell out of me but she got the results, our class all got A's and B's, I got an A, we were very well prepared for exams. Miss Lawless and Mr Thornton took us to Gyles Quay one Saturday for an educational outing, I was sitting in the front seat of her car, she is so nice outside school. Brilliant teacher, gave me a love for biology, I would love to meet her again and shake her hand. She believed in me. Brianán x
As a previous student , she inspired my love of science and career path. I am trying to pass this love of science on to my own daughter. She pushed me so hard and it paid off. Thank you.
Knows maths but told me I'd end up stacking shelves in Dunnes. For a bright girl, this could easily have knocked my confidence. I've still never worked in Dunnes and that is my remaining memory of her
Great teacher but scred the crap out of me - I have never ever forgotton what she taught me.
Worked us fairly hard but did get the work done + explained everything v. well. Did a science degree in England + found that i had as much chemsitry done as A-level people
You will always remember the teachers who push you. Thank you.
brilliant teacher but scary in the worst possible way!
I have to admit she is an excellent teacher, but half the time i think it is fear that makes me work hard in her class! She made me& 3 of my friends cry in 1st year!
Quite intimidating and can put u down if you get her on a bad day but if you work hard she'll encourage you. Was always delighted if she praised me!Knows her stuff+gr8 exam tips.
Best teacher ever! Had her all through school, even TY for Maths and Science and I still love them both. Always pushed you further but had a sense of humour too
she has totally changed since this web site was set up fair dues to her.She always liked me but now she is nice to every1.do your best for her+she does4u
Nicest and best teacher in the school. I s becomming really funny and nice
brilliant at what she does. not the easiest to get on with though and has no problem with being outright ignorant to her students.good teacher though.
ive had this woman since 1st year&im leaving in a few weeks and she has always believed in me and pushed me to get the best results i can master.i owe her alot
An outstanding Maths and Chemistry teacher! Ms Lawless gave up a lot of her free time to help me with science projects over the years in St. Vincent's school.
Miss Lawless, was a tough scary woman, but a great teacher cus she was passionate about teaching, one of de best teachers i ever had, has faith in those who try
has an obssession wit weaker students yet dislikes the so much
very gud teacher..scary..but brilliant teacher regardless..

Ms Lawless is an absolute superb teacher,i was 1 of de weaker students&she always had fate in me now im in my 3rd yr of Pharmaceutical Chemistry,probs thanx2her
Starting to get nicer all of a sudden! dunno wot brought about da change in her but woteva it was im grateful!!But neway despite da temper she is a gud teacher
One of the best teachers ever, but sooooo scary. "The brighter ones of you will understand this" is her favourite phrase.
good teacher but SO SO SO SO SO SCARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
scary, she has her favourites (very few) she trys to throw people out of her class because she doesn't like them!
Brilliant teacher, really knows what she's talking about - not one of those you're afraid to ask cuz they probably don't know the answer. great!
She knows her stuff-but it can be a frightening experience in her class. Effective way of teaching for some but there are better ways that would help more!
shes a really good teacher..but she can be absolutely terrifyin!!..she spent1/2 5th yr tryin2get rid of ppl..am still afraid2ask questions!!
Probably one of the best chemistry and maths teachers in the country! If you want your A1, she'll help you get it - gauranteed!
Is very strict and has her favourites and she should not criticize the `slower` ones.She is fair and helpful and knows and teaches her subject well.
I didnt mind her at all but sometimes she could be bit caustic. She was good at her job but lacked some of the skills you need to deal with people.
I had her for 3 years and she woz a brilliant teacher but the hardest one i have ever had. likes to pick her favourites in the class. but excellent teacher.
A good teacher but always afraid to ask a question because she would literally call you stupid in front of everyone
Should not throw people out of her class for no reason!! A good teacher would want ALL pupils to enjoy her subject - not just the "brighter" students
