This Galway teacher's comics will resonate with any múinteoir heading back to school

So so accurate.

COLM CUFFE IS a teacher from Galway who also happens to be an excellent cartoonist.


He keeps a weekly comic strip on his Facebook page, the excellent When’s It Hometime?

It sums up life in the classroom to a T, and teachers starting back this week will recognise these situations all too well.

You pretty much have the opposite stance to parents about the arrival of a new school year

It’s like you’re a celebrity. A really shit celebrity.

You should all appreciate this feeling of starting afresh, while it lasts
