Did the job with physics, but terribly overrated. Eamon Fitz is a much better LC teacher. Not a terribly nice man. Short fuse.
tom is a top man,really put the marist into top shape since taking over.Really knows how to run a good school.stern but fair.dream team with colgan and blaine at the top.
An excellent teacher, has real passion for the job.As principal, has restored the Marist to it's former glory, we needed him when Br Gerard retired. But, better late than never!!
a legend.but hugh feeney always stop him from teaching .talking about golf all the time.
an absolute legend. couldnt ask for a better teacher got me interested in physics from 1st year n had him all the way to the L.C. luckily enough
Am a girl who went to his applied maths for 1 year.Easiest A1 I ever got.one of the best teachers I ever had.He ROCKS!!!
excellent teacher for both physics and applied maths...tended top teach teach things that were not on syllabus! Only negative was the latin bovine references
couldnt understand what he was saying or his writing
he loved to teach physics but lost his temper when home work was not done
his approach at teaching is far too dictatorial. i was often afraid of him. it's good that he's finally turning the marist into a respectable school again.
A Great wee man. Good interesting teacher. Always had you on your toes. Taught me science way back in 1982.
A gentleman that I will remember. Helpful both during and after my time there. Long may he continue
Top man for the job,he should go for pope next cause if he can sort out the catholic church like he has sorted out that school hes the man for the job!
Manages to be popular and funny while keeeping order in class. A great teacher-I still benefit from his advice on exam technique/preparation (4 years later!)
Very good teacher. Still use the exam style that he thought me
A fantasitic teacher, never ever had one boring class with him, the best in the school by far.
Great teacher Knows his stuff shouldnt be a principal
A great man & teacher, wasted in an administration role, get him back in front of a class. firm but fair, i still have the scars
Remember him as a excellent teacher, pure lunatic though! Dusters and keys flying all over the place
Agricultural Male Bovine Excretia is how he described one of my science experiments, but he is still a top man!
An excellent teacher who loves his subject matter and is very organised in his work.
i left in 1997. blaine's a good guy though. shame about the donegal accent!
Very good teacher; wouldn't be doing what i'm doing today if not for him
One of the best teachers in the Marist. Tends to make a show of you if you can't answer questions properly. It's a pity that his principal duties are starting to affect his concentration on teaching.
Great man , hard but fair... teaches with clarity and humour
