Insight into Piece


Cleverly crafted by Kevin Raftery, Insight into Piece is an interesting, original and sharp-witted collection of articles, with a few unusual short stories thrown in for good measure. Comprising a variety of styles and genres encompassing local, national and international themes, the pieces range from the factual, the psychological, the political, the insightful, the social and the critical. 

Written over a seven-year period from 2011-2018, Kevin expertly focuses the critical spotlight on the institutions that govern us, documenting and recording important socio-historical facts of the time, sometimes controversially and on occasion with humour. All the events catalogued proffer an interesting twist to reading proceedings. This includes the fascinating fly on wall Inside O’Connor series which documents real life in rehab for those predisposed to addiction problems.

Covering topics including human nature, disability, travel, addiction and mental health, Insight into Piece contains over 143 articles each written in Kevin’s ‘unheard’ but distinct narrative voice.

Kevin Raftery

Kevin Raftery is not only a writer but a Toy Developer and has created a board game called World Dominance, which he hopes to publish very soon. Kevin had an ordinary class upbringing and has managed to achieve an MA in Media Futures, a BA in European Culture/Media Studies and is currently undertaking a BA in Screen Writing. Kevin has also run for council a couple of times and managed to 'ruffle quite a few lofty feathers' by challenging the systems that govern us; sincerely believing that there is a better way. Most importantly, Kevin has that rare gift of insight which enables him to not only see right through the institutional facades which govern us, but also allows him to understand how the majority think, which in turn allows him to offer alternative and original takes on the social and psychological of which we all experience in everyday life.
