He was a fantastic teacher. Such a gentleman. I'll never forget doing "The Field" with him.
Pat was and still is a top man. A great teacher.
One of the most beautiful human beings ever to grace the Abbey. The pupils were his life and he was so generous I will never forget him
A gentleman a giver loved the guy- one of the most generous
A fabulously generous man. He was the best.Teaching was a vacation for this man- nothing was a problem- cannot thank him enough for his constant support
A shakespearean actor of the highest quality and an inspirational English teacher. God bless him
Without this man I would not be on course to studying to become an English teacher.
Absolutely Fantastic Teacher.nearly every day for seven years i had class with that lad. what a mad lad he was
One of the English teachers that can actually teach english!!!! O'Rourke take note
His recent appearance at the school was a heart-warming sight, always good to see a true legend floating around once in a while.
a legend- will always remember him on his knees in the middle of M2 playing Lear- shall never leave the abbey
A legendary hero of the Abbey, surely will go down in the history books
True legend. Dermot made the worst decision of his life in allowing the man to retire, bringing in two shams in Reynolds and McAleese
A teaching legend, he was also the last manager (along with veritable legend A.D. McDonnell) to bring the MacRory Cup back to the Abbey.
40 ratings for the big man, and not a moment too soon. Not enough fine things can be said about this walking testament to the teaching of English.
Teachers like jed ad and others make school that bit more bearable and there is no higher praise than that. You find his pictur beside legend in the dictionary. true abbey stalwart
Deserves a place in the Abbey Hall of Fame for pure eccentricity - would join the likes of A.D. McDonnell and Hugh Markey among the best.
An absolute credit to the teaching of English. Despite his retired status, he can still be found skulking around the corridors - that's how much he loves the Abbey Grammar.
The man hit the nail on the head...its a BUBBLE! Great english and form teacher...help me out more times than i can remember...bring him back!
A-level 2001. Remember the waft of BO? Inspirational and passionate. A-level English at that time was perfect. With Jed, Mel and The Bap around, you were great hands. Brilliant.
Fantastic man, a real character, already part of Abbey folklore.
A pity Jed had to leave, he was a truly outstanding English teacher. After so many long years of dedication in the school, he deserves a quiet retirement. Thanks Pat, your memory l
Possibly the greatest and most legendary teacher in the history of the Abbey. This man really does deserve 5s across the board. Thanks Pat, your legacy in the school lives on.
A one-in-a-million extrovert, a true gentleman and a real character. Formed an integral part of the Abbey, and will go down in history. Enjoyed a bit of wine during school hours!
brilliant teacher, the man made english enjoyable, wished he could have taught forever, good to see him out and about. always good to hear his different stories long live Big Jed
An amazing teacher and a legend in his own right. Still pops up for frees (aparentley its his ghost) Super man with a super legacy for the school
