I did not like him when I was in school. But since he left Ive heard the school is got worse and people leaving the school to go to others like Castlebar.
Patsy was great. Yes, he was very strict but if you were a good student and didn't cause any trouble, he gave the same respect in return. Balla SS seems to have gone to the dogs since he left.
Great principal, Had to be strict,He kept the standards high ,Well done
Many of the comments here are unfair. Yes he was very strict and he may have intimidated people. He had to be this way, he maintained a school with a great reputation. I enjoyed my time at the school
very strict but just looks out for his pupils. good work p
I had him seven years ago and can honestly say i never met anyone as millitant, restless and agressive around, and towards young people. His overall attitude used to sicken me.
I found this man highly unapproachable,I agree with earlier comments regarding"favouritism".Does not give proper credit to those who give the school a good name
I have great respect for him. Quite stern and conservative but more often than not he was fair. Balla is lucky to have him
look a very genuine man. and it had the least amount of trouble, than all the surrounding school, in my opinion
not as bad as ever 1 makes out..i spent my first 3 years in his office but get on with him now..can be moody..
a small village like balla is very lucky to have a secondary school tobegin with-thanks mr.sheridan for all your hard work in maintaining the viability of this
