Had him for rowing coach for 6 years, of all the teachers in inst Billy is the one I respect the most. The devotion he gave to coaching was second to none. The most important thing he taught me was to never ever give up, no matter what, and this has been imprinted in my mind and is used every day since; people nowadays just give up too easily, mentally and physically. You don't realize this until years after. One day I am going to shake this man's hand and thank him. A legend.
People were very unfair to him, his knowledge and ability to teach Classics is phenomenal. The only people who dislike him are people who aren't talented linguists or are scrotes.
Excellent guy. I had him as a rowing coach for about 5 years and he was a real character. As eccentric as they come with a great sense of humour and real enthusiasm.
I feel kinda betrayed by him. Think he thinks some people did stuff against him, wasn't by any1 on the 1st 8. Hope he forgives us and comes back to coach us, he's too good
You can't compare him to Mr Marron, Bill is simply a legend
SOOOOOOO nice! He's the best rower alive...better than Mr marron (MCB)
Inspirational rowing coach - know's everything there is to know about the sport. Bill is one of the best people in the school. Rigourous teacher who considers others' opinions. Fun
An incredible teacher, easily one of the most intelligent people teaching at Inst. Admittedly he (like a lot of inst teachers) gets a lot sounder after third year.
I cant really understand him. He has a bad name but hes not actuallly that bad billy bennett will always b the best
He isn't great for the junior school, but Really hilarious at 4th form or higher. He has some really funny mannerisms and his love of Ben Hur is just funny.
May be a good coach, but he cant teach! quintus est loser!
This guy is the most pathetic teacher i have ever encountered, he will explain nothing and instead of helping you he will slag you infront of everyone
I have a lot of time for this guy. He just gets on with his teaching and coaching.
legend, brill coach, hell of a funny man, very down to earth, doesnt get enough recognition
sound guy...bit hard to understand but still damn fine classics teacher and one damn hard rowing coach :/
Excellent coach who does not get the respect in inst that he gets all over ireland.
Not easy but seriously some of the funniest classes were in Fish's..great facial expressions as always
Legend in his own way, hard to hear what he says, but a good teacher and coach
