Hilarious man, keeps a great balance of making jokes and actually teaching. I've heard he's leaving next year, will be sad to see this man go since he's been in the school 30+ years.

One of the best teachers I have had, a real character and a very passionate teacher about both the subject and his students (although he has a rather unique way of showing it)

Amazing teacher, very hilarious and a great actor. He acts like the school is boot camp, and I try to strain from bursting out laughing.
PS, for anyone who doesn't know, he only acts scary and strict.

Hate using this overused buzzword, but the man is a legend. Extremely funny. However, can be quite distant and unresponsive to pupils that are academically bright....teaching independence or favouring the funny ones?..

I was taught by Declan McDaid for 4 years when I was in senior school and I would have to say that he was the best teacher I ever had. I am in my 3rd year of University in Glasgow and the skills he gave me are still serving me. He was fun but we got the work done and everyone got top grades. F

Had Mr McDaid for 5 years during the 90s. Unique approach to teaching, did everything in character. Remember him learning his lines for "Philadelphia Here I Come" during lessons with pupils taking various roles. Piss taker of the highest order. Definitely my most memorable teacher.

Perhaps, the brother of John Cleese acting in Fawltey towers in a parallel universe. My Enlish teacher from 93-95. Extrodinarily witty. I wasn't a good englih student, but I know he was a good teacher. I once got top marks in a project thanks to him. Amazing. Now I'm a Bible college teology student. The Enlish he taught is still useful!

Easily the funniest and most able teacher in the school. Brings the English department way up. Integrates humour perfectly into his classes so you're never bored. "Variety is the essence of his art" He is always keen to humourously reflect on the condition of the school. Best teacher there without a doubt.

Had Mc Daid for seven years, best teacher ever and an inspiration to the hundreds of pupils he's taught over the years. Always helped me out even though i was a bit of an idiot most of the time. Got me onto a lifelong passion with books except Chaucer.
