Mc Ginley, a Legend. I finished my leaving in 2005. Paul Mc Ginley instilled a passion for Ireland in me. He may not be suited to teaching specific subjects. But he taught me more about real life and relevant history than any other teacher. He deserves an award.

I had Paul for 5 years for Irish. Did the leaving in '89. Nice guy most of the time. Very scary when he exploded though - Definitely no need for it!
