"What do you mean you don't know?!" Divilly asks my 6th year class "is der anybody here taking grinds?" the whole class raise their hands! I think he wishes he cud fly, cuz hes always flaping his arm!
great maths teacher - absolute genious. Thanks Paddy
i fell behind hugely in his class,apparentely so did me dad
I had him for computer class . I was lost in that class, really lost. Maybe it was me i don't know.
I got a B in the Junior Cert and I got it all by myself. If I had Dooley I would have gotten an A easily. Is sound enough when he is in a good mood on rare occassions but is normally a bully.
What a waster. Goin into my 5th year of maths with him. Have learned very little off him. Grinds are keepin me goin
a teacher who had to put up wit a lot, i give him credit.
Class men only can really see it after you have left but is a great teacher
Paddy, along with the 2 Christy's (R.I.P. - Ruane & Fallon) were tough but fair, unlike many of their peers. DEDICATED.
really knows his stuff and covers the course well, expects students to put in the effort but will not stand for messers and time wasters.
Had him many years ago, and still remember how little help I got in class...was happy to drop to pass eventually
Ok if you have him for pass mathos or junior cert he's useless but he seems to come into his own for the leaving cert and makes some sembelance of an effort?!
Had a wonderful smile.Brutal teacher-always kicked me out.I got an A in Honours JC maths from sittin in Central Area-i was better off
not a good teacher at all, best he kept his mouth shut full stop!
Occasionally gets in a bad mood and takes it out on his students but not nearly as bad a teacher as these reviews suggest. Covers course material adequately
he is very unclear. i once was out and when i came back i asked him to explain he told me that i come to school to learn to learn.
Hard working. Spends more hours working for the school than any other Teacher. Good Discipline, didn't tolerate messers, I think a few of them have posted above
Taught me maths for my junior cert. Extreamly unhelpfull man. His class was always a drg to me.
poor teacher. play games on his laptop during class and flaps his arms too much.
Poor techer. There is no point askin him for help he's only going to answer "what do u mean you dont know"!
Does not force students to learn - gives a lot of freedom - so good for great students but does not work so well for poorer students. Enjoyed his approach.
Confusing explanations. Tends to over-complicate topics.
