Challenged us to think instead of conform. More than 30 years later I still benefit from that early learning....and owning my own opinions and attitudes. Intelligent and funny guy
picked on the weak, knowing hed get no reaction from them, got by on anecdotes and appeasing the 'messers', taught little of value but was popular with those who didnt want to learn anything. A waste
Taught me to keep going, taught me to appreciate the hills, the views, taught me that just cos your a kid doesn't mean your views aren't worth anything. Taught me to drive on through the cold rain.
Sound chap but manic. Life and soul of the party one day and ripping up copybooks and roaring his head off the next. He was a good laugh most of the time though. Very savvy and a sound chap.
Notice how there isn't a single comment on Doc which hasn't been red flagged I wonder why! Didn't have anything against Doc, just his ideology which he would present to us everyday
talked about docs rating to friends my age.they couldnt believe it was good.couldnt be trusted by anyone when he thought me
Top man. An outright legend. Never forgive him for introducing dave to the mountains though.
Didn'tlike him in school, I didn't like the way he had favorites, he showed us how to beat the system without actually teching much geoghraphy, fair play to him
The fact that he got so many average students so many good LC results is testament to Doc. Seemed to be a genuinely kind and caring teacher.
never looked down on us. alwyas interested. put alot of effort into teaching and csnmc. willing to bend the rules for the sake of students
A1, one of best in the school. Enjoyed his job and loved having a laugh. Never be forgotton.
one of the soundest teachers ever. dedicated and relaxed. a great laugh and a great teacher.
The best there was. Cared about the students a lot. Great fun with doc always had something good to say and an absolute genius when it comes to geography.:)
What education is all about. His committment shows in his teaching and his mountaineering club. Always got on with students that no other teacher could.
sound man.Had him for junior Cert.Was a great laugh in class!
You learn more in a class with him than in the entire year with many of the other "teachers" in the school.
Doc has always been my favorite teacher and Geography quickly became my best subject due to his efforts and skill.
nice guy, sound man and a genuinly althruistic teacher
truly a king among men an inspiration to us all and all round nice guy
Tony 'Doc' Doherty instilled a lifelong love of performance and humour in everyone who encountered him. He is truly a great teacher, and a good man.
Nice Person, Good teacher..He was the man, heres a man who actually cared about the students, mixed teachin and havin a laugh very well
Good man,fair and honest, worked hard with everybody and put in 100% effort.
Best Teacher I ever had, could teach and entertain at the same time.
Good sense of humour. Made geography more interesting. Not sure if he is still teaching or not.
