A very harsh personality but a great teacher. Learned more from him in one Irish class he took than I did in 3 years with the regular teacher. A gifted educator. A bit mad though
A fantastic man and a superb teacher. One of the best things about Gonzaga during his time there.
In retrospect an irascible man, but fair at all times. A just, tough, passionate and excellent educator.
I hope he mellowed in his old age. He still owes me interest on money he took of me in the mid 80s
Worth all those years of being bullied by this man in Prep School in order to be able to round on him en masse in Pass Irish 6th year. "Ai! Corn Flakes!"
If you didn't get in his bad books he was extremely fair teacher.
made me go to wilsons hospital to play a cricket match because i was talking to somone on the cricket team outside his office.
Great teacher and a great man. Made sure you worked hard, and when you did, his classes were a pleasure. God help you if you didnt!
Hates anyone who is not a rugby jock. Tried to make me do pass Irish, and yet I got a B1 in honours... Totally unfair teacher
Never a nicer man. Tried to help me for JC and not letting him is one of my biggest regrets. Class 2000.
Excellent teacher! Tough but never unfair - You knew your stuff going into his class. Genuine gra for Irish Language - kept you on your toes!!
'Cad ata sa seomra codlatha?' Student:'eehhh, eehh... teilifis?' Noel:'ye can't sleep in a bloody telly fitzy!'
He hates anyone who doesn't play rugby!Is a begrudging vulture.NOT A FAN!
What are ya... a doghnut.. a millennium doghnut.... but a nice millenium doghnut
A zaga legend is zest for life is second to none an intergral cog in the Zaga machine.
got me two grades higher in my leaving. i found him to be an extremely nice man but does hold grudges against certain individuals in each year.
Outstanding, thorough knowledge of and passion for his subjects, commands respect easily. Best teacher in the school, vast majority of his students get As
Probably the best teacher that i've ever had. Learned more from him in 1 year than i learned in the other 3 before that in McCauls class! Legend
