Had a real passion for history and a wide knowledge around every subject taught, however the problem came whenever we had to apply this general knowledge under exam conditions. Although I learnt a lot of little amusing facts about Hitlers rule in Germany, these didn't appease the examination board and their mark scheme. Apart from that, hilarious guy who loved to catch smokers and I spent several years hiding from him down Cliftonville at lunchtime.

Jimmy Carolan's jokes are abysmal, but I can forgive him that. Decent teacher, lots of handouts (so no dictation, which I think worked cos it left more time for class discussion).

He's really dead-on, buying toast/sweets/iced logs for the entire class. Needless to say, he did buy our affection with sugary snacks and free tea :D
