Legend greatest laugh ever
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)
Absolutely cracking teacher, really interesting and funny and knows everything about his subject
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.
honestly? a freakin fantastic teacher. he only pretends to be scary and is a good laugh. appreciates pupils who make an effort with work in a non cocky way and really cares about the grades and futures of pupils. hes also a very talented drama teacher and I only wish i had him next year!
I think Mr.mcdaid is the best and funniest teacher in St.colmans college!!!!
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?..
SUCH AN AMAZING TEACHER!! an hilarious man and got me my A i needed in english. SUCH A LEGEND!!! i think this man deserves a life-time achievement award. GREAT man
very funny and a brilliant actor. love the voice he puts on when he pretends to be angry. when he's not funny he's very unfair to students.I know hes an exceptional teacher but he could be a bit less scaey
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.
funniest and one of the best teachers in the school. only wish he had taught me for more than two years.
this man is god he got my e and d with bearnie up to a A and level 6
he is a pure ledgend no better man for a bit of crack.
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 best! Dr. Brown, the principal at times, needs to learn from this man how to enthuse and how to do a proper job! The most inspirational teacher I have ever had - please you so called senior management??? - learn how to do it properly and ask him!!!!!!!
possibly the best teacher ever!! ever..... as simple as that he is absoulutly halarious and is a great teacher in the process.
This man makes learning fun and had me in stitches with his sense of humour and his knowledge of Literature is second to none. Great man
best teacher to ever walk the face of the earth got me an A in english GCSE soundest maddest man ive ever had the pleasure of meeting.. really did make it all worth it.. thanks from all of s2c 2005!!
u man, are the legend of all legends............i worship you in evrey way.........i want to be you.....
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.
Great teacher, tho certain boys were continually absent inorder to attend conventions. Disregard for Pip.
he scares me for most of the time.makes me think of war alot. i have managed to control my urinations to a dribble.overall a scary guy who knows his english
Seig Heil!!! if you know what i mean. During my a level exams that he was in on he would walk up and down between the desks goose stepping. Always a good laugh
OMG. What can you say. "Excellent" and "Certainly not" are some of the phrases he uses day in day out! Looper but in a good way! Can be strict when he wants but otherwise a laff. Remember one rule: stay off his balcony!!!!
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.
This man is the most dead on teacher in the school, A great help in getting the work done and achieving full marks. KEPP IT UP DECLAN!!!!
funny funny person. great craic. has a collection of stuffed monkeys and a small toy phone which he uses to hilarious effect.
hero, gets ya thru everything, best teacher in the school wothout a doubt,actively takes part in slaggin other teachers,students,races, anything thats worth a laugh!makes it enjoyable
One most broad minded people i've ever met.Incorporates comedy with world class teaching.FACT:he gets the best results in the school yet acts in a humane fashion.A gifted actor and not someone you would forget!
he has excelled past legendary status he is now at leg-endary status, what a guy!!!!
I am the egg man, we are the egg men. I am the walrus, co co co choo. He is absolutely nuts. But we all love him.
mastermind! amazing person!! does any1 not like him? beats mrs mohammed any day! good craic and really funny. 11 out of 10!
He is a Funny man BUT DONT GO ON HIS BALCONY but a good teacher
Best teacher ever - a pure legend. This man knows his stuff and will get you thru any text on time and perfectly. So witty and slightly devious - pure class!!
what a guy!my hero!always up for a laugh and wil get ya thru if ya turn up to his class!brilliant!
man is a legend nd a "beast",slightly de-ranged,but still a cool.
Never actually was taught by him but he is a legend funniest man i know
pure brilliant teacher, had him the first three years i was at da scool, pure legend
master propagandist - only revealing information on a need-to-know basis. Master manipulator, can make you do things without even realising your doing them
Great teacher, but seriously deranged (in a good, eccentric way)
