nice guy but absolutely shocking teacher. HATED biology until he left after 5th year. then got ms casey, loved it, got an A1 and am now doing biology in college.
A philosopher really.He's certainly not a teacher.I know more about his life and childhood in Cobh than I do about Biology.
he's very dis-organised and doesnt explain things clearly. but he's a nice man outside of school.
actuall is an ok teacher.......keep up or u will loose out....... he got me a B so.... very sound outside school
Had him 30years ago for Biology. Whemn my mother went to the Parent -Teacher meeting and asked him about me, he couldn't remember me and couldn't tell her anything about me!! When is he retiring??????
strays from da course and goes back over what hes done v slow teacher tells us stuff we dont need to know
worst teacher in csn has put me of science for ever said i was weak at the subject and no wonder with a teacher like him had him for two years as my class teacher an still doesnt know my name
PADDY MAC IS A LEGEND. HIM SAYING;;; worm used to make me laugh for hours
worst teacher in the school never does any experiments put me off science forever and hes my class teacher doesnt even know my name.
legendary soccer coach. takes his work sweriously. doesnt tolerate messers.
Not the best teacher: strayed from the Course to irrelevant stories about Cobh harbour. In 6 yrs the only experiment we did was to boil water
fine teacher. very dedicated. has brought great success to the school in soccer.
Sound man,I had a good 6 years, maybe should stick to the course more, maybe not, i did enjoy those spyrogyra afterall. Thanks Paddy!
"What I would describe as..." Never stopped saying that.Had another saying also but I can't remember now. Very entertaining class but for all the wrong reasons
Had him last thing on a Friday - kept the class in every week. Put me off science for life!
"Throw the ruler out the window, sir! Go, go on! Yes!" Back to staring at the wall.
I used to want to give this guy the chance to prove himself a great teacher - but alas he is a joke and wasted many a pupils time. Interested in sport.
Really liked his Biology classes, made what he taught interesting. One of my favorite teachers in secondary school.
handy teacher.strays from the course a lot though!! "my cousin nearly drowned in two inches of water ladshh,down my way in cobh"
Awful teacher who has a skill for wasting time and going off the point
made biology one of my favourite subjects, and knew his stuff backwards. Made me want to know the material rather than simply learn it for an exam!!
Spent half of 5th year teaching us stuff that wasn't on the course. He knew his stuff, even if it wasn't relative.
Fucus Vesiculosus and Spyrogyra..ill never forget it!!
Awful teacher .Constantly 'teaches' topics that aren't on the course
one of the nicest and most knolwedgeble teachers but he doesnt teach the course and leaves all but the brightest students stranded
"Ladsh, I can bring the horse to the water, but I can't make it drink." So true.....
Great Teacher,he had a great passion for his subject and it showed in his teaching.
Biology - a boring subject made... just as boring! Go and do economics.
he knew what he was on about but went on a long drawn out way of explaining it,very few experiments, often put many people to sleep. but was helpful if asked
