Mr Hurley was a teacher that comes to mind when I think of my Secondary in St Nessans Limerick ('79-'83), he was a teacher who got you to understand, not learn Maths- they were half a dozen of us in class that had difficulty, and he took time after school to give us a grind in his own personal time- a nice gesture by a nice teacher and all round bloke, often thought of him, & used to see him in Souths now & again.
Seems other past students thought the same on this forum. RIP Seamus. (Mr Hurley)
Excellent Teacher, best one ever, I not only passed my Maths but understood it!!!
great teacher and did exactly what youd want to get an 1 in pass maths. brilliant teacher and absolutely hilrious aswell
Its great to read comments like these from the students of today I done my "inter" the first year the school had one 1981 and Mr. Hurley was a great teacher back then also. what ails him?
Great teacher!!!!I i was your only hope, class of 99
The only teacher I had that used to do my maths homework for me! Holding all those books at the beginnng of assembly as he went down the line obviously worked!! Cheers! 85-90
Top bloke had him in first year learned so much then went to DI to be thought by Mary Ryan and everything went downhill then. Also I am sorry the man isnt well of late .
