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!

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.
