Barney Quinn was my teacher for the A level English and the Oxbridge exams too, though I upset him by changing to Law from English. And then I told the interviewers that I wanted to go to London U rather than Oxford which he also found out which upset him more! In retrospect he was right, and I would have been happier not going into Law at all. Despite appearances this isn't about me - it's that he was right, and he saw things in me that I didn't. I think others experienced that too.

He was an excellent tutor, and an excellent and enthusiastic teacher and instilled a love of literature and poetry in me that has never failed.

May he rest in peace.
