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.

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.

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

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.
