I had Heffo for three years, History and English, and I loved his classes. Yes,he was tough to follow at times, but he gave me an appreciation for history, and Dublin history in particular, that is still with me today. I would love to meet him again.
One of the best teachers I ever had - could be very funny too, he once told our English class: "you guys are as lazy as it is possible to be, and still stay alive"
A good teacher and a clever man. He lacked confidence in many students and often persuaded people to drop to pass level. I imagine this was result of a generally unruly class though.
One of the most interesting and inspiring teachers I have ever had.
He is such a dive to be in a classroom with, he is very helpfull but i cant help being board when he starts talking.
I liked heffo, even if he did ask me ludicrous physics questions when he was bored. All in all, a bit of a legend.
Mr Heffernan is boring and all his classes put you asleep
Nit of an inspirational teacher for me back in the day; a pity to see the negative comments all relate to his current performance
He taught me Economics. He clearly knew his stuff but his voice was so hard to listen to sometimes... ZZZZZzzzzzzz....
Great teacher. I repeated my leaving cert there three years ago. I wouldnt have done well without his help.Tends to ramamble
made me think completely differently about english, thought me to think for myself, a really cool guy
Nice Guy but goes off on tangets about non related nosense now and again.
Great mind but cannot judge talent, last year he told 6students to do pass and they all got honours in the LC in higher. Here's to you Mal
Mr Heffernan taught me LC english in 2002.I think he's an excellent teacher but he can be too critical at times.I got a C1(H) depsite his advice to take pass
A Good Teacher, however has a tendancy to ramble at times, but those times that he isn't, he's a great teacher.
Heffo was smart (he's a member with MENSA) but could relate with every student. a total cool teacher, who i will always remember
Too brainy! The rambling I'll agree with but if you're on the same wavelenght I'm sure it all makes sense. Funny sometimes!
