I generally wasn’t liked by teachers and understandably, I was a messer. Mick Bulger gave me respect in a way no other teacher had done and in turn I gave it back to him. He recognised that intelligence wasn’t just academia and I will always be grateful to have 1 teacher that believed in me. Happy retirement Sir 😉
Retired back when I did my Junior Cert. He was a decent man. Never did any work in his class at 2nd & 3rd year. He just talked, and we all tuned in. Even though he was repetitive, [Remember Lads, 'Caveat Emptor' Let the buyer beware - ringing my head]. What's sad was that we were supposed to have him for dean as Fifth Year, but little did we know he had to take the leave.
Since I have free-time, can I have another lend of that Faulty Towers now?
Loved bolger, can't believe he retired he was my dean and he made 5th year so easy always getting us out of trouble and detention with teachers, great man and well respected
Always got the impression he disliked me, therefore I don't have fond memories of him.
My favourite teacher and dean. So sad that he is retiring this year.
Sound chap. I was in the first class he had when he showed up in the school. Some guys have it from the start and this kid had. He never had a problem making people pay attention partly because he was actually decent teacher and partly because he looked like a sixth year and in my time Templeogue College, sixth years were fearsome creatures, not to be trifled with.
Very helpful and great teacher but above most a gentleman to the core who along with Mr. Guilmartin, Ms O'Donnel, Mr Kelly, Mr O'Shea and Ms Coveny made an utterly positive affect on my life.
Serious joker. Refuses to teach with the windows closed. Bffl = M. Kelleher
he actually makes a difficult subject easy and interesting
''Im raising the bar for you lads'' '' if i got this from my sixth years id be impressed''
im raising the bar for u lads, just having a quick phone call
