Looking back now, you understand that we had great teachers - He is a legend, that no matter where in the world you go and meet a "Mary's Boy", his name will coem up. Respect is the man. 1984- 1987
Legend of a teacher, knew every single history school book word for word, always caught me out if i skipped a word or especially a question!! I became a history teacher due to his influence even though i had em for 3 years
a decent sort. bit old fashioned. more of an academic than a teacher, does his best. don't think he could give a fiddlers damn what comments are on this site. would'nt surprise me if he ever checked it out this site.
He taught my father in '64-'69 and myself '97-'99. Unreal. This may surprise ye but we got the mellow version of him. He'd have shown Fannin the door in no time
Mick - Yera a legend. An buachaill cuinne thu no buachaill a suionn sa chuinne? I learnt history thru Irish (85-87). If you knew your gaeilge u were ok.
excellent teacher only really apprieciated in the later years, miss those short notes, pity bout the smoking ban,the athmosphere just wouldn't be the same
Taught me 1973 to 1977. Brilliant teacher! Inspired me to go on to become a teacher of history! Fond memories. Hope he is well.
Klack ruled the college he was like a living legend, actually I think the history of galway museum want to have him in as an exhibit, "ya blackguard ya!"
Respect the 'Old school'. Respect clack respect. Tough man
Klack,waht a teacher! things were done his way or they were not done at all.
