He is book rip paul
He is one of my favourite teachers even though he retired.He was funny and kept a straight face nearly all the time. He had a rule on the board saying 'no smiling' and a guy in my class would always changed it to always smile.It was always funny.He had lots of rules and when u broke them he would make a joke like 'Rule 25 ..... ' 'I hope I don't see what i think I'm seeing, you drinking from a water bottle the only reason to is if you are sick or have a note.
Best Teacher I ever had , very formative for me in becoming interested in educating myself (been out of school 5 years now and continue to read up on history and take it very seriously). I ended up getting an A in higher level leaving cert in history from his mentor-ship, and I wasent even that interested in history before his classes. He wrote up notes on the black board from memory every day for 6 years straight including dates and details!
Sound teacher Always has the jokes! Heard he was retiring next year (2018) very sad :( Him and Des Mooney
PAULY IS THE BEST EVER
Soundest teacher in PSN. Great laugh and really makes history interesting.
Probably best teacher in psn
17th April, National No Smiling Day! Great teacher, never smiles, once did a fish face trying not to laugh :D
After ' Articles 2 and 3 were dropped. He warned that he could have me deported. He's good craic, his class was always cool
I left Neasains in the mid 1980's and I'm in my early forties now. If it wasn't for him and Mr.Mooney I would have given up on education altogether and have not gone on to do a BSc and an MSc in TCD. He was able to get us interested in history without being a wet Robin Williams Seize-The-Day type character and he had the temperament of a third-level lecturer - a don by day and a dude by night. A true educator and deeply respected by all whom he taught.
percyyy is deadly ;) love him to bitss so i do! hes whopper ... the aul tirangle! jessy loves him <3
he makes ya fall asleep, started failing history ever since i got him in second year...
Let me mate go asleep in class because he wouldnt shut up lol.

Great Teacher, forget the text book his own notes were class, I had Nolan nearly 18 years ago, and the 1916 rising reminds me of him, he got the best from even the weaker students, Nolan you legend
Absolute legend. Never raises his voice+knows 1922 as if he wz der.
Absoutle legend made school fun.. fuzzy wuzzy was a bear!!!l loved the cardigans sir..
"i wouldnt bring you to a dog show in case you won","television is chewing gum for the eyes".......your words have wisdom will stay with me forever sir!you rocked

Enjoyed every minute of your class sir, and you certainly make us proud to be irish. love reading kevin myers nowadays & u made learning irish history somethin special, thanks sir!
How can anyone write that well on a blackboard? Greatest Teacher I have ever known. Thank you for my love of History & for keeping me interested
Oh my god!! your still at the school!!! Annemarie Whelan here!! remember me!! I always had a great time in your class and learnt a whole lot from you!! cheers
A great teacher- didn't need the text book as a crutch. Learnt a lot. Every history teacher since has been a massive dissappointment
Mr.Nolan is brilliant!x I miss ya sir! Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee!
Absolute gentleman. Made every day of school such a pleasure. Thank you for everything! You give us faith!
great bloke.loved history because of him.he just read the books we got for three years.it was class
I want to take this man to collage with me.O can't imagine a better teacher! No one makes history more enjoyable and interesting..."In spring the sap rises"
Quality.. Easily soundest teacher in the country.. Best history teacher 2.. He knows everything.. Comrade Nolan.. I salute you..
He is a lovely teacher a great laugh and is great at teaching history. Up on your hind legs was one of his favourite sayings. Always wears navy cardigans.
amazing teacher - obviously loves it and made his students love history - should write his own history book - love ya!!!!!
hes a leg. Easily one of the best teachers in school. escpically history. doesnt even have to look at a book. notes from head to balckboard
brilliant teacher, loved his classes. lord of the flies... classic.
likes teaching history hates teaching english but he's great. he's real and doesnt act above ye. have you got that? ye sir. what have you got?
Great sense of humour. His recital of "The Lord of the Flies" should be available on cd, brilliant voice acting particularly for Piggy.
As a past pupil, I still look back and laugh at this man, genius when it comes to history and all round funny bloke
GREAT TEACHER. Makes sense listens to Sabbath toatl ledge
great teacher very funny lokks alot like brendan grace
really good teacher but that writing of his is soooooooo bad!!
the most scarcastic man i have ever met in my life! a harsh grader and my hand was falling off at the end of every class, What day is it? was his fave question
great guy,good teacher-take a long hard look other teachers
Really cool guy but its obvious he grades by eeny-meeny-miney-mo grades bear little relation to exams. & whats the deal with nonsense verse for poetry/English??
Total legend, Notes not the best in areas(euro history and english plays etc.) but so helpfull and respectfull and just a good sound person
Mr. Nolan is a great teacher! but he gives alot of notes! But he's really funny!
Think Mr Nolan is still teaching. A fantastic teacher and boy, did he fill up those blackboards of his!!
Deadly teacher.Hes down to earth unlike alot of teachers in the school.
