Best form tutor ever, I miss him more and more each day <3 (turn sideways ders a heart!)
An absolute legend
The best teacher in the school
I've never had him as a teacher but my friends say great things and he is very entertaining in non-games
Top bloke, extremely intelligent. Makes you look at things from alternative perspectives... a great skill to have in the field of History. Made bland History topics bearable. Had the remarkable skill of being able to teach NI history in an unbiased non-offensive manner. A real gem of a teacher and I hope what I read in other reviews about him moving back to Derry to teach are untrue, although it would be understandable as travelling that everyday is bound to be exhausting.
He is a good teacher. I had been getting Cs in history since first year but when i got him for GCSE i got an A*. His jokes are pretty awful but he made learning the history of NI bearable.
He class he always brings up csi or something like that
HE IS CLASS WE <3 Him!!! (turn sideways ders a heart!)
Good bloke, sad to hear he went back to teach in Derry.
totally awesome teacher but needs to stop teally really, really bad jokes. Slags off students as well and then they annony him forever! :)
Good teacher, decent notes and he'll get you a good grade no doubt but as for his personality, i think he trys to be too funny. He never volenteers for anything outside his classroom. Teaching is just a job to him, he doesn't understand the sense of community within Dalriada.
Probably one of the only men to actually have lived through being shot at , gassed, approached by paramilitaries and still think teaching was a right laugh. HE IS BRILLIANT!!! V Diddy for headmaster.
i like him he is really intelligent although he seems a bit insecure with all his jokes. i like it when he gets really into history he starts shouting his notes!
I second that comment two below - Quite possibly the greatest man alive.
Great teacher, i got my best history results when i had him as a teacher
Writes the notes for you, Never gives homeworks, funny, the mans a legend. Also i got an A in History so yeah he is a brilliant teacher as well :P
Never had the man as a teacher, but attended his near-legendary series of talks on the irrationality of religion during one World Aid Week. A truly inspiring man, a firm help to me, as someone who's sick of having Christian teachings forced on them in school. I hear he's the best history teacher too, but I had Mr Bredin, so I'd doubt it! :P
AWESOME! brillant teacher and made history so funny and only gave us 1 hwork in 2 years and made history really easy to understand
Brill teacher!!!!!he rox! let's us listen to music as long as we do da work and is gr8t at everything!!best teacher i've ever had.a funny guy as long as u have roughly the same sense of humour as him.don't believe in hmwk so an instant fave in my clas!now love history and am realy interested in it!!he's gr8t craic!!
Mr D gives you the notes, he explains it but expects you to go to him if you dont understand i had him in third year for one year and compared to the 'history' teachers i had before he was the best one. A great laugh you can't take anything he says to heart,
brilliant teacher. slagged me off every class but got away with it lol. actually makes friends with his pupils. his stories are hilarious, if you've never heard about the play incident in dublin, as him!
He is so kwl. He made history my fav subject. He also really funny. Definately the best teacher EVER!
One of the most genuine people I've met, Mr Doherty was my form tutor in sixth form and I had a fantastic two years. He is funny and slightly unconvention, but can take a joke and really cares about his pupils. Credit to his department and the school.
mr doherty is brill hes so funny but we still manage to learn everything
Brilliant teacher and guy. Taught his subject well and had a laugh at the same time.
HE IS THE BEST TEACHER EVER, A BREATH OF FRESH AIR COMPARED TO OTHER TEACHERS. HIS HUMOUR IS UNIQUE AND ONLY HE COULD GET AWAY WITH WHAT HE SAYS! HE TAUGHT ME TO APPRECIATE HISTORY AND TO LOVE ANCIENT HISTORY ESPECIALLY THE STUFF ABOUT HANNIBAL AND THE PUNICWARS! THE MOST UNCONVENTIONAL TEACHER EVER
well i dont think he thinks before he speaks sometimes but generally an ok guy and he gives brilliant notes. And knows what hes talking about most of the time anyway.
Mr Doherty was one of my favourite teachers, he seemed genuinely interested in helping pupils. He also had a sense of humour, which was somewhat of a rarity!
