Incredible knowledge. Learned lots from him. I will always remember "Don't talk, don't yawn and take your hands out of your pockets"
Excallant teacher and a gentleman. Great class control too.
Best teacher I ever had. Remember when Dominic McGlinchey was on the run in the early 80's. Benny got out the Ordnance Survey Mpas of North Leitrim and we plotted McGlinchey's escape route!
Absolute genius!! A huge loss to Mel's a bigger loss to Teaching
"new line new sentence. this new line in red pen please" dont be yawning!!! thats the second time i have caught you at that today. did you get no sleep at alll last night. so in red pen start
Probably one of the best teachers i will and have ever had. he knows his stuff and the odd funny line. have left mels now a few years but he is someone you will never forget. tops
If your brain was made of chocolate you wouldnt have enough to fill a smartie
"Dont be yawning!" BRILLIANT teacher-call out notes without looking at a single page/book-never had to shout to keep control-was very funny-should have got vice-gentleman-loved "big limestone blocks!"
What Pele was to soccer, Benny was to teaching. Great person in every sense.
Excellent teacher. Instilled a love of Geography in me that served me not just in Exams but also in life
Only saw from this site he dad retired, best teacher I ever had. Gave me grinds for german as well out of the goodness of his heart. Excellent Excellent
With Hal, the best "If you don't stop looking outside, you'l be outside looking in" there weren't many outside.
Definitely the second best teacher in the school after Scruffy,Mr. Nerney is the reason im still doing geography,an absolute mine of information and a nice guy.
Great teacher & a nice man. Famous phrase "Gobl if brains were made of petrol, you wouldn't have enough to run an ant's motorbike around a penny once"
LEGEND - brilliant teacher & hilarious put down lines. Heard he missed the promotion - a real pity
he once said to a Mr Rooney, if brains were made of cholocate, you wouldnt have enough brains to fill a smartie... funny man..great teacher :)well done
best teacher i had.kept great control on a class & was sound outside class.
One of the best teachers in the country. Dedicated to his students and their success. Made many people love an unpopular language.
Finest teacher I ever had for anything. period! Danke schon fur deine unglaublichen hilfe, Herr Nerney!
The best geog teacher in the country- who else could call out exact notes from pure memory- pity he got done over for the principal's job- happy retirement.
