Loved George....a beautiful human being...😇. RIP GE...xx. Thank you Billy Butt for sharing your thoughts!
George was my favourite teacher! Always enjoyed his class! He made maths fun and enjoyable! Sorry to hear, my condolences.
George as coach for the boy’s cricket team.
Really enjoyed George Eagers classes he made maths interesting. Sincere condolences to his family...Carole Budge Beattie
As I said on Billy Butt’s page, George Eager was a very decent man who treated everyone the same. All the girls swooned he was so cute. I loved him as my hockey coach best which are better memories for me than math class. I loved seeing him again at our class reunion in 1993. RIP
My late mother would have been in that classroom too.... thank you William butt... my condolences to the Eagar family
Didn’t he support some irrelevant football team like West Bromwich Albion?

Rest In Peace Mr Eager you were one of the special ones 😔
Such a gentle and kind man RIP Mr Eager
Ah no - don't ask me why but in the office he was known as "The Branch" and we had such a laugh with him - a lovely man and so patient with me as I muddled through typing up his exam papers on the old typewriter in the days before computers. May he rest in peace.
Very sad news-he was a lovely man. RIP

I was in there over the long weekend and I was most impressed with the physics, chemistry, biology, maths and social and behavioural sciences projects from across the country including from disadvantaged areas, Gaelscoileanna and Northern Ireland too! The PRIMARY SCHOOL projects from across the country were all most impressive for their given ages as well in at the fair! Luke Drury is an absolute gentleman and a sheer genius and I have attended some of his talks at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (D.I.A.S.) just before he retired during last summer! His retirement party from D.I.A.S. was combined with a ceremony to turn Dunsink Observatory into a site of European Scientific Importance in June 2018 attended by some of the best physicists from across Europe honoring him and other famous Irish scientists too!

My father-in-law W. (Billy) Thompson was very excited went we told him about the photo. Two of his granddaughters have followed in their grandfather's footsteps by playing Rugby in Luxemburg, Ireland, Scotland and Italy.
Thanks, my Dad, Roy Ritchie is on the right. He will be delighted to see this photo. He has great memories of his time in Wesley as a student and then later as a teacher 😃👩🎓

I just want to say that 2018 was a fantastic year in terms of the Leinster Commemorations in Dun Laoghaire and the World War One Commemorations in November as well and the Wesley connections to both tragic events! I look forward to more commemorations and celebrations of events associated with Wesley Alumni during 2019 as well!
