Had Mr. Broderick from 1982 - 1984 . Great teacher. His notes were the absolute best !!!
Best for chemistry, taught it as it should be taught.
I was a giddy goose but he brought me to my senses! Got an A in the leaving in '97 all thanks to this great teacher. Has to be one of the best. Thanks Ollie
Fantastic teacher, a real legend, dont think there was anyone that had a bad word to say about him. Wouldn't have passed my chemistry if it wasn't for him. He deserves some recognition
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires. Oliver was the greatest...
Ollie was an outstanding teacher, taught me from '78 to '84. His "stare" was legendary, you had to know your homework to avoid it. Great man, very genuine, fond memories.
Excellent teacher, helped many students to top leaving results.
Ollie taught me in 95 and 95. inspried me to continue a career in science. One of the most genuine peole I've ever met... with an antonishing gift for teaching!! Thanks Ollie!!
Taught me in 87 and 88 was a legend then and obviously kept it up. If only all teachers could have been like this.
As nice a person as you're ever likely to meet. Who can forget his standing on the desk and running into doors antics. Inspired me to go for a career in science
taught me for lc in '99 - great teacher in fairness.His revision notes were legendary.DEFINING MOMENT-jumping on top of his desk and shouting "EURUKA"!!
If only every teacher was like this, made a difficult subject easy and enjoyable.
Tell them and they'll remember it 4 a day - Show them and they'll remember it 4 a week - Let them do it and they'll remember FOREVER - Legend
Sorry to see he has retired. If there ever is a Linus Pauling from Dungarvan his Chemistry foundation will have been put in by Ollie
best teacher ever. big loss to the school, made chemistry easy which is no mean feat... lc 04
I could write for hours on this guy a genuine man who had a love for his subject & students looked forward to class evryday. Will neve forget him, inspirational
excellent, the man spared me from an atrocious grade in chemistry
very sad 2 c em go. this man should come back 2 da school.sound man. sould come bk out of retirement.
Words cant do this man justice.He was a true inspiration & brought chemistry to life in the classroom. He was both a teacher and a friend. Thank u 4 everything
Best teacher ive had,never left enything to chance. His notes have been known to fetch a high price on the black market
Mr.Broderick is who all teachers should aspire to be: concise, comprehensible, caring and funny!
"JOHNNY WAS A SCHOOLBOY FOR WHICH HE IS NO MORE, FOR WHAT HE THOUGHT WAS H2O WAS H2SO4". THIS MAN IS A LEGEND, LOVE ALL THE RHYMES!!
Brilliant teacher, one of the best chemistry teachers in ireland!
my inspiration, the day he retired was a sad day for the school, irreplacable, one of the best ever, and the kindest person possible, thanks for everything!
Mr. Broderick was the best teacher I ever had. A true inspiration and an utter gentleman
The man is a living legend - the world needs more teachers like Ollie!
proberly the best teacher that i ever had. did absolutly everything he could to help his students and influenced my career choice!
Both composed and concise. An excellent communicator. His class notes are very good.
