Within 12 years of the war ending, many of the heroes were discovering that their bravery of the battlefield and in conflict was of no use as they had mouths to feed and homes to sustain. One of these happend to be the great manColm McNulty himself. xox

Great teacher loved history and passed with great results due to his teaching style and story telling ability. His displays of anger out side Guantanamo Bay (the military library) let him down.

He was a fantastic history teacher, that allowed me to gain top marks in the subject. But moving on, in current times he is too stroppy in the library, and padantic to a point of annoyance. Throws spectacular psyches that are entertaining.

this lepricorn is a total nut case! he knows his stuff and is a very good teacher and can prepare you well but his fluxuating temper is just frustrating. He lives the dream that he owns the library and takes a small matter too far, blowing it up.

McNulty is a real character with a great love for history, especially NZ history, which is strange considering he has only lived here for 7 or 8 years. His sometimes irrational anger can be unnerving, but its tolerable at the end of the day. Great.
