Hands down the best teacher i ever had. Amazimg that people that went to school 20 years ago still rave about him. He has had a huge impact on people’s lives. There’s a few people who dislike him. They are in the minority and the ones i’ve come across are generally not the brightest and have chips on their shoulders generally. Very passionate, sometimes a bit over the top but thats peobably what made him so good too

Tá mé ag tosú le Gaeilge a fhoghlaim arís sna Stáit Aontaithe. Tá sé seo cuid mhór mar gheall ar Shéamas! Táim níos sine, i mo chónaí thar lear agus tá mac óg agam; tá do chultúr agus féiniúlacht an-tábhachtach agus tuigim Séamas níos fearr ná riamh. Múinteoir den scoth! 1991-1994
- Maith do mo botúin Gaeilge!

Sár mhúinteoir! If only a fraction of the Irish people had the same passion for their NATIVE tongue as Séamus has, the language might survive outside the classrooms past 2020 (the predicted official death of Gaeilge )
