Excellent teacher, always loved his class
only realised what a good teacher and nice person he was after i finished the lc back in 2000. I think he has a degree in theoretical physics.
What a man he's a legend
great man hes funny always have a good class of nothing, probs does a new experiment every week.
Had him for app maths in 4th year. Will be doing physics for the leaving thanks to him. Great teacher, very easy to get on with. Has great control of the class while still maintaining a calm, friendly atmosphere. He is the only teacher I have ever had who can do this. Has immense interest in his subject, but unlike a lot of other teachers, this doesnt manifest itself in a pretentious or self-rightous way. He is truly down to earth, and wants to spread his enthusiasm to anybody who is interested.
Tom Hughes (aka Sid Vicious) was my science teacher from 1979-1984. His enthusiasm for his subject was manifestly obvious and he helped an innumerate thicko like me start a lifelong interest in scienc
The best Teacher i ever had.A Teacher in the true sense of the word.Still think about him 25 years later.Great to know he's still there.
i can say comfortable in my hetrosexuality that i love this man.best teacher in the school.up kilkenny!!

Now this guy is a legend, pure and simple. Will answer ANY question u ask him2,nomatter wat,even if he don no.Big up urself tommy boy!
Twelve years out of Terenure. He's there with the best teachers around. Met him over at Paddy's weekend 05 in Temple Bar. Perfect exponent of work-life balance.
This man is one of few true geniuses in the school. always to be found in the front bar of bradys.
top teacher. its his fault i m still doing chemistry.... and he was right i did drop the physics and start chem. a legend.
One of the best teachers ever. Great communicator. Very witty. Never had to shout his head off - just say "settle"
Good teacher and dont hav to work that hard in class
great teacher, very helpful and manages to teach science well without pressurising his students like many other teachers do. keep up the good work, Tom!
Just had him for a few weeks in 4th year. A very nice guy. Very laid back. Very helpful. Pleasure to be in his class.
needs to give more time to take in information, moves too fast, otherwise a really cool guy
This guy is a legend. You should see him holding class in Brady’s. It is amazing how mant past students still want to be near him. A credit to the profession.
Funniest teacher who can get work done at the same time without dossing. True and utter legend
sid vicious u ledge. were qualifying for the grant! il get you that vector you always wanted.
brilliant teacher in applied maths. truly great man! made applied maths fun and thought us all how to play snooker the mathematical way... still loosing though
Cool guy, tries to make physics quirky and fun.. "a rooster accelerates from rest to a constant velocity.. wait, let me clarify, a rooster is a type of potato"
Great teacher, very funny, verry enthusiastic and gets the work done.
