phenomenal teacher, harsh and strict but keeps you in line and gets you the result you want, gives lots of work but marks hard to show you were u are sitting, although the overuse of the word 'largely' is quiet funny at times

I'm always puzzled by people who lambast Mel in comparison with the likes of Reynolds and McAleese. These two absolutely pale in comparison with the Mel-meister, a man whose legend is arguably (nearly) comparable to that of P. O'Neill, P. McKeever, R. Ruddy and the likes. A heroic personality.

I doubt one could ever label one of Mel's classes as "boring." No matter how tedious the subject matter, Mel always found a way to enlighten us, mainly through the use of crude humour and innuendo.

16 years ago when Mel McMahon first started at the Abbey, we were his first ever GCSE class. Found him a very inspirational english teacher who was the seed of a life-long love of the war poets

Rivals Oscar Gonzalez in terms of getting sidetracked from the subject at hand, perhaps the word "anecdote" will provoke angry memories from past pupils.

All I'll say is that it was Mel and Gerry that got me my A-Level, just look at the results, A Reynolds should move back to transylvania.

His effective use of innuendos and smutty humour in class succeeds in making the students forget that his ability to teach is practically void.

'Just as an aside, i'm still looking for £10 photocopying money.' Has never let his frustrations with the 7th years '05 get the better of him. Quite a nice guy.

A gent no doubt but he was frustrating. I know he hated our 2001 A-level class. He was overheard complaining about us. Still, he could be inspiring which is what you want. Solid.

Mel always kept a very high standard of teaching. Unlike Gerald Morgan, he has never allowed himself to become "distracted" by other members of staff.
