terrible, boring teacher. would take a dislike to some students for absolutely no reason
He had a love for Gaeilge, which is more that a lot of his ignortant students had. An múinteoir!
Terrible teacher. He focused on the few gifted students(who knew more than he did) and didnt pay much heed to the rest unless they wanted to talk about gaa.
My claim to fame is that I nicknamed him Basil - not very difficult, I suppose. I still have his 101 sayings that we put together in '83. Classic stuff. A good man.
Took a lot of stick down the years, wasnt a great teacher, but certainly tried, played on his hurling teams, liked the man but wouldnt recommend his abilities in the classroonm
Bhí sé go h-iontach. Bhí an meas ag na gaelgóirí air. He was great. The Irish speakers had a lot of respect for him.
I am glad that he is still teaching very nice man, tough but fair.
If Leonard Rossiter was a teacher he would have been Michal "Basil" Frawley. Great interest in Irish and sports.
Cool but in a weird way. Great person and a great love of the Irish Language.
Up the banner - the man was genuine gentleman. A good, honest and decent man !
