Agree with the general opinion. Only had him for two years Economics Leaving Cert. Got my best result in Economics and loved going to his class. If I had a few more like him, probably would have ended up a doctor :-)

Mr O'Brien, everything a good teacher should be. He commanded respect without any need for discipline. He allowed the class to police itself whilst all the time educating and encouraging. A legend

I had him for English. A great teacher and full of humanity. Always welcomed my far out interpretations of Kinsella et al. I have the utmost respect for him.

They say first impressions last. This was certainly the case with Mr O' Brain, If you didn't impress him at first you never would.

No doubt he was a good teacher - particularly in Geography. But he had favourites and I never understood the mass popularity.
