Hah you're only a young whipper snapper!
Greetings to all my former fellow inmates of 1975 to 1980!
never made it past 5th year... was told id do better 'somewhere' else ........................
ended up gettin 540... suckers....!!!
anyways... i smoked behind the curtains of the stage(found out this could be done after a teacher telling us there was no smoke alarms there because the 'bosses are too cheap' nice move sir!)... or round the side of mr 'dr' byrnes office.
i loved the business teacher mr smith.... he just amused me with his odd breathing... ms daly....... what a looper!!
mr synnot... what a legend. 'sir can i go to the toliet' 'no' 'why?' 'because... you... i... do your work' 'please sir' 'sarah do your work' 'sir i really have to go' 'finish your work' 'sir i have my period' 'sarah. do. your. work.' 'please sir' 'OUTSIDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE' go out and sit down on the step for about 5 mins. then hed come out tell me how great and what good potential i had, how i was alot smarter then everyone in my class. id nodd along.......... then hed let me go to the toliet.
or his classic line.... 'what if i dont wanna get the boat. what if i wanna get the bus or train'
ms grimes maths first year 3rd day.... a guy decides to fall over and bring his whole desk with him. 'what are you doing?' 'i dont know what happened miss i just fell over' 'well would you mind not just falling over in my class thanks' 'but miss i cant help it if i fall over' 'o boyyyyyy. ive been teaching for 22 years. you dont just fall over its mathamatically impossible' *laughing from class* 'right everyone fall over' *more laughing* she sits down arms folded. 'im not teaching till everyone falls over'
of the day we walked in to find her fixing the stains on her walls with tippex! or her briefcase. or the way she had a holder thing for her chalk and used to keep it in the sink.
mr horseman 'i will not say a dingo ate my baby. i find it offensive'
when we turned mr gleesons class room around and all faced the back wall instead of the blackboard.
who can forget cable ties!!!! or turning bags inside out!!!
or fr tom just goin up to get off class
being banned from every ty outting....
mr oates and the way he used to sit on the desk and like have his huge crotch in your face.
when the intercom used to be left on and you would hear something you werent supposed to
putting bubbles in the fountain
pity its so bad education wise
HA! Love this thread. Good times...
Howya Cock! I worked with Barry Delaney too...nice to know he's doing well for himself, good bloke.
Finished in '05 myself. And I take personal responsibility for Mr Synott's descent into grey-hairedness.
Oh and getting everyone kicked out of Eddie Henry's class for playing Limp Bizkit on my recordable watch (which was the style at the time). Or getting kicked out of B1 then chasing pigeons outside to entertain everyone. Or sneaking into his back office, putting on his glasses and reading his paper while everyone laughed, Eddie didn't know WHAT was happening and Mr Sobolewski came in and saw me like "WTF?!"
I ran. Quickly.
Ah, I was a good pupil deep down. Just ask Ms McPhillips
On a serious note, I nearly got expelled for being a bully there. I was an arsehole, so I may as well take the opportunity to let anyone I picked on who may be reading know that I AM sorry. I was a hormonal-arse teen and took it out on folk who didn't deserve it. I sincerely still feel bad about it to this day.
Anyway, yeah, what a school though. Those were the days...
Calling all students of 1989 Coolmine Community School, the 20 year school reunion is being organised for 8th of August 2009 in Brady's Castleknock at 8pm.
So if you or anybody you know was part of this year, please P.M. me, if I can get contact details, I can get the full details sent on , even if your not available to go, get in touch.
Ingrid is organising this, so if you get the Community Voice this week she has an article in it.
ButtonsFlyie I've merged your post into this thread, and I'll sticky it until the Reunion is over.
Graduated in 2005. I'll never miss it. From what I hear it's a complete scumbag breeding ground now. Even more so than before.

Came across the thread and thought I'd post a reply. I attended Coolmine from 1978 - 1981, was 1D,2D and propelled to 3B for the third year! The only teacher I can remember from that time was Mr McNally the metalwork teacher and of course Mr O'Beachain. It was different then, the school was in the middle of nowhere with fields in every direction. The Gym/swimming pool seemed to be a long walk on a rainy day and you could never fit all your book in the lockers. Ah, memories!
jayz.. that means my 20 year reunion isn't far away
class of 1992
we were the 2nd last year to have the legendary "Grip"
fav.teacher - Mr. Halferty
glad to hear he's still going strong.
teacher who used to keep you on your toes:
You're not fooling anyone "Stinjy" I sit beside you in that class & I know for a FACT you're JUST as bad as the rest of us, you're always on bebo on your mobile
In first year my locker was in C corridor just beside Inion's room! Oh and we have a new Oratory aswell, It's just behind the chaplains office, and religion classes on a Friday with Mr. Smith just wouldn't be the same without it!
Mr. Synott's just back off Paternity leave aswell (well, if you can call it paternity leave, he was out for a week, but he said paternity leave) His wife had a baby boy and they called it Joe, you can only IMAGINE the slagging.
We couldn't even get away with smoking behind the stage anymore cause thats where they have people ordering lunches, so it'd be noticed
I had Miss Grimes in second year just before she left and I'll always remember her talking and looking at the ceiling, I remember one day she was giving out to me and my friend, well she was only giving out to one of us, but because she wasnt looking we didnt know which one it was and then she screamed at whoever she was yelling at to leave, so we both went outside, then she followed us out on a wobbler asking why she left, turns out she wasnt even yelling at us, was quite funny at the time, I just laughed in her face. I remember her always going crazy when her sinks were wet too, so we used to leave the taps running in the morning and every tuesday, wednesyday and thursday she'd go on a mad one. Then evantually we started soaking barrel roll and throwing it on top of the blackboard, like just above it, random funniness but it never got old!!
I had Mr. Sobolewski 1st-3rd year for Geography. Me & Rebecca sat in the same seats for three years and he always called her Amanda's friend. He always told us mad stories that had nothing to do with Geography too! Tried to tell us he was a ghosthunter, I was the only one in the class who believed him, and from that day on he was my hero xD He also told us a story one day about A baby wanting Liga, i never quite got that one but the rest of my class laughed so I just went with it!
Has to be said, I love that school, teachers p*** ya off sometimes, but at the best of times its a laugh!
ONLY in coolmine would ya be watching Billy Elliot and the part comes on with the littl e girl and she says " i'll show ya my fanny", will someone shout out "thats Laura!!!" Hahaha keep me in that place as long as u can lol
haha Amanda I know, well, I am nearly as bad as you..
You probably cud get away with smoking behind the stage sure theres only 2 of us that do the orders and we wundt tell no 1 xD
I froze my arse off today bloomin sports day!
Wow... take it easy. No need to badmouth so strongly.
definate need to badmouth. not nearly strong enough.
