An unbelievably nice person. A great example to any other teacher. Gentleman.
Such a wonderful man
Quick with a smile, kind to some students, but totally spineless. He was afraid to stand up to teachers, and always sided with the worst ones, even when they were clearly in the wrong. Lacked integrity and common decency, beyond the superficial level
Mr. Noel Merrick is very kind, generous and altruistic.
Youd swear that he goes home and learns every student's name. Knew my name the first time i approached him. Brilliant principal!!
a gentleman, a brill principal, door alwaysopen for you. An absolute legend! you would go a long way to find another prinicpal like him.
One of the greats of teaching. Always takes a genuine interest in the pupils
sound out any student will tell you that. he will always help you out if your stuck
The man is a credit to that school and to this town, genuinely loves his job. It'll be a very sad day for the CBS when he leaves.words cant describe how genuinly amazing this man is.should be preside
best princapal you could ask for.you will not find a nicer man
the best ever principal in the world and thanks for today by brian lynch
If This World Was Just Covered With People As Dedicated
Cant say enough good things about the man. Truly sets a great example and is very genuine! Made school easier for me
All said already. Left in the 80's(!), saw him a few months ago and made it a point to shake his hand. A gentleman.
Can't really add much to what's already been said, he is the definition of a 'great man'. One thing I might mention though - THE SPELLING IS ATROCIOUS here lads!!! Straight to Liamo the lot of ye!
Best teacher in the country. You wont get much better.
an absolute gentleman. the man should be made a saint. looked after me in my 6 years attending naas cbs. a real class act.
Mr Merrick has got to be the soundest man going he is the best man for this school
anything that i can say has been said by the near 100 people before me.... a real class act !!!
Left 20 years ago, but still remember him well. An utter legend and total gent.
de chaps sound ou! im in 6th year now and like if he give out to ya hed still be smiling. a very pleasant principal
Went to CBS about 10 years ago and Noel was principal then too. Sound chap, doing a good job. Very approachable and knew every student by name. Hard working also.
cares more about sport than he does the school ...and he cant take th fact that the scool is rapidly going down hill
the soundest person to ever walk the earth!...wat a ledgend!
Mr merrick is a truly great man. He appitimises the best qualities in a person. The man is Naas CBS from 8 in the morning to 10 at night. it is his vocation. I will sincerely miss his company.Legend.
One of the nicest and most genuine people i have ever had the pleasure of meeting, they haven't come up with a word yet to describe how sound he really is, thanks for everything, Vincent Gilroy
As said before a true gentleman, left in 94 and still knows me by my first name. If only more where like him. Legend
left in 1979!!! he still calls me by my first name! gentleman throughout and yes a master teacher in his days before principle: whats this cool thingy??
I'm not in the scul a year and he's a LEGEND to everyone!!!!
Brillant fella, he should be the New Minister for Education, soon sort that dpt out
Great people skills, remembers everyone, has that whole Tony Blair-esque charm, a class act all round. I say make him our next president!
the man still knows me 5 years on. he's a legend. one of the kindest people ive ever known. he's up there with gandhi
is the man permanently smiling. even when he freaked out he looked like he was smiling
RESPECT HIM. HOWEVER CONTROL MUST BE HIS PRIORITY FOR A SCHOOL THATS LOSEING ITS GOODWILL THAT MADE IT SO UNIQUE
left CBS in 02', still greets ya with a hello and a smile (happiest man in the world!) always fair to everyone no matter what...a class above the rest
This man runs the school on a shoe string.And what a way to do it.Great principal,a lovely man.Thanks sir

Isnt appreciated for his work! Nicest principal you could possibly have. Well done!
king among men. without a doubt best principal in existence. should see his brother matt, splitting image of him
The man is a credit to that school and to this town, genuinely loves his job. It'll be a black day for the CBS when he leaves.
best principal in the country if not the world! he knows everyone by name and couldnt be fairer or more hard working if he tried. rock on man!!!
i'm not in the school anymore, but from day 1 he was incredibly sound. a model for every other principal in the world. thank you sir!!!
Could not possibly be any sounder. Knows his stuff. He is THE man
A nice man but gutless. cant make the hard decisions. a real PR man.
Absolute legend,the tom cruise of principals!what a smile
Brilliant Principal, knows almost every student, kind but strict when he needs to be. "Best Principal Ever?" probably.
Great teacher - had him for Irish / history back in the 80's, best in school
Hard worker, respects, listens to and tries to get to know all the students AND he's still got a sense of humour. Best Principal ever.
still the best man in the world. he is just brilliant, its great the way he takes the time to get to know the students
I hear he has a bird now and go nollaig mans a true legend
A very balanced, fair and knowledgeable man. Best principal ever?
