Great Teacher who always had time for every student and was always up for a laugh. Model Teacher in every way. Connor H. - Physics L.C. 2008.
A fantastic man who always did his best for all, including extra classes coming up to exam time with no charge and in his own time. I was lucky to have him for the 6 years I attended the school. I man
A really excellent teacher! He got me to understand the toughest subject about and now I'm finishing a PhD in a related area. When I teach I try to teach like him. Thanks Paddy. Eoghan-Donegal
Wonderful man - i didn't play sport yet he still helped me!! kind and caring put extra classes on for those who needed it (and in his own time for free) pity more were not like him!
he was a good teacher, but he was only really helpful to the popular students or the students he liked. If you didn't play football you might as well of been an non entity
one of the best teachers that ever worked - a helpful kind man who cared for the kids.

Usually had him for the last class of the day for Maths. "Now lads I know you're all dying to get home and muck about but please, give us the full attention"
Great teacher and a sound man, good football coach too. A pleasure to be his pupil
Legend. really helpful. He deserves an award 4 his teaching
nice man, even tho i was awful at honours maths,he still gave plenty of attention until i moved to pass. Only ever heard nice things about him at school
Paddy, your a legend. Saturday morning classes and we all came. Shows dedication from you and respect from from us. Says it all. Wouldn't do it for others.
brillaint teacher willing to help everyone and give up his own time as well. 6m 2004 and 6b 2002
PADDY IS THE GREATEST TEACHER THAT WILL EVER TEACH IN THAT SCHOOL AND DESERVES TO BE TREATED WIT GRATITUDE AND RESPECT
Very hard-working and dedicated teacher and a thoroughly decent man to boot.
Paddy is the best teacher there by 6 miles or 10 kilomaters in today's terms!
Padraig was an honour to be a student for for the 5 years. He did 28 hours extra with us last year in HIS own time. Change the bike though Paddy!
Probably the hardest working and most respected man there, his commitment to his stufents is un-paralleled. I hold him in the highest of regards. 6G '04
If there was an award for teacher of the year paddy would have it every year.Best physics notes ever made.
Notes: excellent yes. I failed for my pre but got a B in honours because of this man. His classes where a plesaure to be in!
Paddy is always up for the craic and is a damn fine educator to boot. Unbelievly dedicated, I hold this man in the highest of regards.
Paddy is cool and teaches with a passion which all teachers should have even though "he gets paid the same money wheather you listen or not"(direct quote btw)
I got honours in both of his subjects incl Maths for LC. Good, approachable and will go no bounds for US to succeed. Funny too and always gives a chance to all
The best teacher Ive ever had, enjoys his work and cares about getting results for the pupils. Willing to give up hours of his own free time to help. Legend.
One of the best! Helps with any problems, very approachable, best notes ever! NO DOUBT!
One of the good guys. Managed to make chemistry interesting. Could be pretty witty too.
must admit that paddy was a great teacher, showed huge interest in one and all, was a bit of a hot head but for good reason, kept disciplin and interest.
Quite possibly one of the best teachers I've ever seen. His Physics handbook (with all the questions ever asked AND the answer) was incredibly useful!
