Great teacher with real interest into his students. Very nice man very funny. Too many hurling anecdotes
Great teacher. Bit of craic, doesn't give homework, definitely a helpful teacher
A deeply unpleasant individual. Unless he has changed drastically since I had dealings with him (the first half of the 1980s), he is a man unfit to be working directly with other people and certainly
Even though he is old-fashioned in some ways, he is still a good teacher for geography. Got me a B in Junior Cert.
doesn't give homework , great teacher everyone does well in his class
No one failed geography when i done my leaving, and ive never heard of anyone who has failed his geography class, he gets his job done though he may be hasrs depending on your personality
he never believes you on my first week a teacher who didnt know me said i did something wrong and i nearly got suspendedd and i didnt do it
Very good teacher, but a hard man to get along with.
He is a good teacher. Pushes the bar higher for students which are willing to do work.
He's a good teacher but waffles on a bit too much in class...
very passionate teacher really motivates his class and gets the best out of them. what more could you ask for?
Sound teacher...and really good at his job. Makes everything easy to understand. Hated Geog before i had him -now its one of my best subjects
am left school now but rodger was over teams i was on.amazing ability to motivate guys.would go through a brick wall for him .got school teams on a winning path after being in a rut.passionate coach.
totally different to what i thought .class works well n discipline very good .am enjoying subject cos he explains it very well n my grades are improving .
A good dean, and also a good teacher as well, and always using sport language to express situations, e.g: 'there'll B a football final in 9 weeks' another words there'll be Exams in 9 weeks.
we have done more in a month with him than we did al year last year.makes subject interesting n sets very high standards.
thanks for the `A` in junior cert.he always said `A` was for atitude and he made sure ours was right .A GREAT teacher.
puts in huge effort in classes.expects same from us.people who doss in other classes made to work .passionate about subject n finds great ways to explain it n make it interesting.
if u listen n put in d effort this guy will get d very best out of u.top drawer teacher n genuinely interested in pupils unlike some .very sound bloke.
respect.helped me loads to get my best result in leaving cert.very motivated n really puts in d work.good sense of humour too.
dont know why hes getting a hard time .firm but fair.only d messers get a hard time n dey deserve it .one of best teachers in school. great hurling n football manager too .
deadly teacher.explains tings very well.best result i got in junior cert by a mile .cant speak highly enough of him .always tries to motivate u to do your best
He is a good geography teacher but takes up a lot of time talking about sports. He tries 2 get the best out of us and does not treat us like kids like other teachers.
he's a deadly geog teacher. Wit any other teacher i wud have failed, but thanx 2 him i got an honour. he puts everythin really simply, so you can actually understand it. Sound Man!
Loves you if your good a sport, hates you if your not. Simple as that
great man.Expected us to act like men which made a nice change.Good fun and very funny
sound man, pure legend. don't no why everyone here is bein so hard on him- hes a great teacher.
PURE LEGEND OF A TEACHER!!! SOUND MAN TOO. GREAT AT MANAGING THE SPORTS TEAMS, I LOVE THAT MAN!!!
Have to say I got on great with Rogder! sound man. Just doesn't like seeing lads waste their time when they're actually talented.
Hate to break it to ye, but he uses notes from the Institute!!!
Rodge is cool...we get along but i dont do any work,other than that we are buddies! Hopefully will pass geog cause of him....but i do miss Mr.C!!
Rodger was a legend! I played loadsa sport, and was the best manager I ever had! Got me a couple of GAA medals: U.16-1999, U.18-2001! Gr8 times!
Really puts in the work.Has dragged my class right up, as they are mostly toerags.Great laugh.Excellent teacher.
didnt tink he was as bad as evry1here seems2say.he cud b hard at times but in d end he made sure u learned ur lesson
comes out at least 10 mins late when we only have 40 mins for PE. other than that no complaints
Sound. grows on you. likes anyone who dont think they are god. great man
Always willing to lend a hand, always helpful, have met him several times since leaving and he's as nice as i rmber!
I'm out of Oatlands a few years. After-school study was well worth doing, I wasn't good at sports but have no complaints about Mr. Ryan. I found him a nice man.
Not a nice individual. Did favour good sportspeople but in his role that was to be expected. Behaviour to students sometimes unacceptable
Whether it be P.E. or Study after school he was unhelpful and favoured the sportsperson, either he likes u or he doesnt and he makes that very clear.
My big problem was he never varied the classes, it was soccer or basketball, there has to be more dont you think??? Also After School Study was a knightmare!!!
Ok PE teacher, sometimes did'nt make it fun though. Its true that he favours the talented sports people.
Tried way too hard in my day, hope he has chilled out. no middle ground - loves you or hates you
A good teacher but favours the sports person! But all round great guy. Best advice u will ever get, listen to this mans words.
Nice guy, deserved a bit more credit. He was a decent bloke when on his good side. If u were a lazy git, he hadnt the time of day for you, fair enuf really.
He has his moods!Either a good laugh or a pain in the hole!
Class man. Only have a problem with him when he comes late for PE! But he is a legend.
