Was really nice and I enjoyed his class but he was always behind all the other english teachers.
Class of 98 best of all the teachers
Tom Nelson is one of the most influential people I've ever been privledged enough to have met in my life
Brilliant teacher and was delighted to meet him by chance at NUIM a decade ago. However he will doubt his own quality given the horrendous grammar and syntax found in the comment section. Good gracious.
20 years since I sat in his class and I still am still suspicious of the establishment, James Joyce, the Church and Pepsi. Best Teacher since Jesus, they should name a Church after him.
pure class, he's doing his PhD now in history btw. excellent fella
One of my favourites, always thought I'd write a book and dedicate it to him.

Excellent teacher. The main reason why I'm doing English in college.-Mary Looby
I used to enjoy english before I attended his class. He totally destroyed my interest for the language.Enlish is not one opinion but it is in his.
gave me a love of English that is still with me 17 yrs on. good sense of humour and great to chat with.
Brilliant teacher who made Ebglish really interesting and clear. Got an A in the Leaving thanx to him!!
Over 10 years since I sat in your class but I still look at you as a great influence on me.
The best teacher i had at secondary school by far, he really loves literature and this enthusiasm rubbed off on his students & he played lyric fm through class!
Sean O'Cleirigh here. never had any problems with him. sound man. felt i let him down.
Gone since 1988 and this man still makes me smile when I think of him. Breezed in, bought us all a drink the night we got our results, 9 A's 10 B's in all.legen
Best teacher in the school by a country mile. Proof that common sense works. Made u enjoy the course, get results and develop as a person seemlessly
I have left the school over 10 years and I still speak highly of you sir. You are the one & only good memory I have of been in the school. Thank You Sir
You thought me a very important lesson...'The sun rises in spite of everything.'' (Derek Mahon) Never lose that passion sir.
