He was an interesting teacher but tended to ramble and waste a lot of time going off in tangents in our leaving cert year we were so behind in work we had to do most of the short stories poems and novels ourselves as we didn't get it all done would have prefered to have been in the other class . But he was a character .
mr. lyons hated idiots and time wasters . he had class . too posh for midleton .
well he definitely had a unique way of teachhing! Great teacher!
Superb teacher. Made the English language come alive. Even made 'Cider with Rosie' palatable.

loved him taught me for my first year in the school, best teacher i have ever had..pity the school couldn't replace him properly!!!!
He was a very good teacher!! I liked his english classes...oh god we had fun! Even though he wanted to shot us all...
Hilarious, whether it was telling a story or flying off the handle. Should have been a stand up!
he taught me in 1974 and i still remember his kindness, a decent soul really. D.
had wit and charm and an old englisg gent about him colourful
he was a class teacher funny but frightening my work was always done to perfection
