A decent man, I came to his Irish class with no interest in the subject having had experienced Bro Dominic's lunatic approach to instilling a hatred of the subject. As a result of Tom's inspiring approach I regained a true love of our culture and language. Apart from that his classes were such a pleasure to be involved in.
Hiding in the press, ha ha!! Great man for the stories.

A gentleman of the highest order and his love of irish shone through with his teaching
Very honest and decent man , genuinely interested in his subject. Just that I was no good at what he taught (to my shame).
It was great when he'd suddenly break into a conversation about a random topic during class.
