I had Mr Carolan many years ago and have never forgotten him. Great teacher.
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.
Amazing guy, best history teacher i've had lifted my marks so much. His classes are funny and we have our own little slabberin matches,gonna miss them. so dead on in and out of class.

Really respectable teacher, great guy, although when he shouts, boy does he shout. Luckily he never insulted me so I can laugh at all the others :-p
great teacher-really cares about his pupils and interested in his subject matter-sets a real example on how to teach-taught me history years ago and he was great
Absolute ledgend!!!!! he treats you like you his mate hes so dead on . the sarcastic comments are also ledgendary
I was taught Politics by JC many years ago when he had just started out in BRA (teaching in the old Rectory) A good guy in and out of school, and he brought alive what can often be a dry subject...
he's sound enough but doesnt really no ani1s names!!! but he's gd craic sumtimes!!!!
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).
wat a guy!! most dead on teacher...his put downs are legend! made goin to politics wortwhile!
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
