Some say he taught the great Marcus Tullius Cicero how about the relative pronoun.
Salve, qui agitus?
Aulatus id audire, sedete omens.
Form tutor for six years. One of the most genuine, nice people I've ever met. Hates people who don't work or shirk the rules, but that IS his job.. Really cares about our class. Never above a bit of craic either, as long as it doesn't get out of hand. Apparently also is one of the best teachers out there.
"What's this, cog notes? Out!" Strict, a great teacher, who you could have a laugh with on class trips to Kerry etc. Go Bermo!!
Had him for junior cert was scared of him at the start he has a tendency to go off on one but he is a superb teacher. Has great control of his classes and is actually really sound when you get to know
A great man. Strict but fair. I still use the Latin sentence construction he thought me over 20 years ago. It was funny when he caught someone with "cog notes" during a test, "COG NOTES! OUT!"
great teacher, very helpful. really sound to us cos we are in his form
He was my form tutor for 6 years and you don't realise how much he cares til you reach 4th year. A great teacher with a good heart
I watched him administer death by finger a number of times. He could employ his talents well in Guantanemo bay fingering confessions out of Osama's merry men. Good teacher with a ferret like temper
Come on now laddy. Way too strict - almost scary but very good teacher.
fantastic teacher if you keep on his good but a tyrant of biblical proportions if you do not had him for 6 years and two different subjects. All round good man if not slightly unfair in moments of wea
i take his classes in the institute- he's really good, very knowledgeable. lads of belvo- you're so lucky to have him
legend of a man, clearly loves what he teaches his enthusiasm is infectious
Great teacher/Form master - tough but very fair teacher. Gave me a love of Classics which I still have 10 years after I've left school. Cheers Bermo!
Fell on both his sides,felt the wrath of the finger,but to be fair,NEVER bore a grudge unless u wer always messing etc.Great teacher&nice guy outside school
interesting/likeable man,good teacher but bad temper. could be VERY unfair at times,threw the book at kids out of the blue. quiet kids stood no chance!
Best Classics teacher there is. He's even better than most of the college lecturers teaching classics.
buddy..... does he still do weights with his finger?
One of the strictest teachers in Belvedere, yet definitely one of the best
Keep on right side of him and youre flying. Watch out for his poking finger
An excellent teacher with a great knowledge of his subject. He's hard if you get on the wrong side of him (not recommended at all) but always fair.
an increadibly knowlegable man, i'd love to catch him out sometime. great when you get to know him.
I gave up latin after transition year, but this guy taught me everything I know. Great teacher. Legendum est.
as a past pupil I found him very bullying and although clear in teaching was quick to anger with those who didn't learn as fast. Not a nice guy at all.
