I NEVER once came away from a conversation with Mary Raftery without learning something.
She had an incredible mind; an extraordinary ability to absorb and store information combined with a gift for insight and analysis the like of which I have rarely encountered.
Mary had a nose for the truth, and an unwavering commitment to get to the heart of a difficult, complex and challenging issue and reveal it with objectivity and real integrity.
