Absolute legend. Great teacher, makes the old gaeilge a breeze! :D
beefy des does his best to keep the irish department afloat these days, gotta commend the man's commitment to saving a dying language
is laoch e dessy t. admit it we would be lost in the world of irish without our inspirational leader!
Desmond Tennyson has literally been carrying the Irish Department on his shoulders since the sad departures of Sean McClory and Maurice McKevitt.
had considerable difficulty explaining the orientation of flamboyant irish poet Cathal Sharkey, but he avoided the temptation of getting 'uprooted' in the whole argument.
Above-average teacher down in Bandit Country along with Sean Gallagher, P. Friel and M.McKevitt
A wonderful great ham of a teacher who tackles topics wholeheartedly, always willing to give up his time to help pupils.
A barbarous yet eloquent and humorous teacher. Everyone who does Irish appreciates him, which is more than can be said for the rest of the school.
A flat cheesecake of a teacher, but he does try his best and is always ready to help you if you have any problems.
A wonderful credit to the school, always gives his all in his teachings. Akin to the Alice Cooper of teaching. It's a privilege to be taught by him.
Great man, but his failure to keep a French dictionary close at hand just baffled me. Baffled me.
The big 'un of the Boord of Ulster Scots, fair faye ye Desmond. His greatest attribute is his pace.
Irish classes with Desmond are a veritable rollercoaster ride of thrills and emotion. Only English classes with Gerald Morgan come close to rivalling the experience.
Expresses high levels of emotion when presented with award plaques and the like.
Desmond, a true genius a great-thinker and one of the few kulturny teachers in the Abbey however, fails in all attempts to attain wit and has a disturbing love for Armagh, 5-1 son
A wonderful teacher, and an avid follower of the Ulster Scots tradition, in particular the Loord ahh tha Rangs trilogy.
You couldn't help but laugh when he contrived to lock himself in his store. The Meatloaf of the Irish department.
Teaching blocks with Huey are more exciting than Irish classes with Desmondo.
His classes are so exciting, you're always on the edge of your seat waiting to see what Des will say next.
A good teacher, but would benefit more from using the "Down 5 Armagh 1" concept in teaching classes. He tends to lose sight of this crucial factor from time to time. A good man.
Appears to lack any enthusiasm, passion or interest in the subject, but he isn't a bad fellow, all things considered. The Armagh brolly needs a serious talking to though.
Decent man, and a true behemoth of the teaching profession.
Lets himself down by continually allowing class to be disrupted by his phone ringing!
Watching paint dry would be more exciting than listening to this man. Incredibly boring man, but not a bad guy
