Kevin McAleer
The Tyrone man’s latest persona lives in a strange world of paranoia, delusions, hallucinations and broken down language; everyday events such as eating out, a visit from the postman, waiting at the lights, can be the starting point for epic mental voyages into the back of his own head.
