one of the best english teachers around i think. I will never forget him nd the school will and has never got a teacher lik him.
The quintessential positive role model and superlative teacher rolled into one. He not only taught the syllabus - but gave students the foundations to learn the bigger lessons in life.
Padraig and John Mac both great teachers of both History and English, such different aproaches though. never 4get Padraig putting on his Blues voice and singing 'the playground blues' great teacher
best teacher i have and ever will come across!i have the greatest respect and awe for him and was disgusted when he retired b4 i finished school!he helped and inspired me!
absolute legend of a man - will never forget the few lessons i had with him
A terrific teacher. An inspiration and a huge loss to balla.
he is the most unreal teacher he is one in a million
Sir you instilled in me a love for english & with it an appreciation for life and its beauty. Thank you for your wise words and inspiration.Thank you for making a difference!!
Was in his knew shop recently and bought a dictionary. Could'nt help but think that if he done his first job properly I would not need to buy a dictionary!
An insperational teacher, The best ive ever had, he thaught about live as well as english honest and fair..Hes missed in balla

I feel really sorry for current students in balla that they are not able to experience Padraig`s class. A FANTASTIC history teacher.

Brillant teacher, totally dedicated, a huge loss to Balla School- Made English and HIstory classes interesting and achieved the results!!!

I thought Mr Mc Loughlin was the best teacher i ever had he was always there for advice and inspiration.Always made class interesting + easy(different outlook)
The best teacher Balla will ever have. History and English classes were the highlight of my time in school. He exuded passion for his subjects
Best Teacher I ever had. Every wanted to be in his English class. Made History so enjoyable to learn. This man taught me so much. Fantastic!
He has been the most influencial teacher in this school for me for all the wrong reasons . Frankly I am surprised with the reviews i have been reading
Excellent teacher. And easy on the eye I have to say!!Did my leaving cert about 9 years ago and I'm sure lots of the girls will agree!!
His great abilty to instill and nurture interest in English,History (& life lessons)have made my life richer. It was an honour to be taught by him.
Taught me just as much about life as he did about the poets & patriots. He was truly inspirational.
A fantastic teacher - History & English come to life! Invaluable life lessons taught here! All social backgrounds treated fairly.
a living legend taught me about history and life. A god among men
