Great lad inspired a love of language in me. really encouraged me to write, he was easily shocked and offended by some of what i wrote but still. One of the few to ask after my home life which was so obviously crap. Ill always remember the man as one of the best teachers I had.
Made you think in grown up way about reading and literature, class man.
This man is a total gent and a fine teacher who had a wonderful calm control over the class. Leaving cert 1986
This lad is one of the best teachers I ever had, he inspired a love of writing in me sound lad there should be more like him
never met a man like him b4, hes the only teacher that could put me 2sleep by just lookin at him, and once he started readin i was gone, v bad teacher
Had him for Intercert Geography, found him great. Made it interesting. Had him for leaving English. First time I could enjoy poetry and plays.
a good man, strict but fair, passionate about his work, all my classmates rate him very well, class 1991
If you were interested he was great, never too severe on behaviour! The exercises we did were good. Encouraged people to form there own ideas about the material
Marvellous dude. Good man, and a good teacher. Enough said.
Could skip half a year of classes and come back 2 find him still reading Hamlet. Had to go to Conor Flood for notes on our novels in 6th year. Nice bloke though
The laziest most ineffective teacher I have ever some across. Wrote on the blackboard once in the two years I spent in his class.
I always found him to be very condescending unhelpful and overall a very poor teacher. I ended up using notes from pass class for honours english leaving cert.
Ah oul Yogi bear was an excellent teacher, cant say one bad thing about him. Always got a great sleep during his classes. :)
I don't think he understood the content he was teaching, all he could do by explaination was repeat the passage for example.. poor teacher shouldn't be teaching
Could be a much better teacher if he actually taught something relevant to the course.
Great teacher his work is always very interesting an thought provoking
