Niamh Campbell’s latest novel This Happy is out now.
Your Hero of 2020?
My baby niece Lani, born in January, who kept our spirits up all year by not having a clue what was going on.
Villain of 2020?
In a year of many villains, it is hard to choose just one. Let’s say Dominic Cummings.
Best Personal Moment?
Winning the Sunday Times Short Story Award. Being told via Zoom in the attic of my parents’ house.
Best Movie or TV show?
The gentle Rialto, by Mark O’Halloran and Peter Mackie Burns.
Maija Sofia, Bath Time.
Doireann Ni Ghriofa, A Ghost in the Throat.
Best thing you saw online? (streamed gigs/trending topic/something that caught your attention)
Hugh Cooney’s ‘Sequel: Lockdown Musings of a Selfish Man II’. Serpent of the Zeitgeist eating its own tail.
Your hope for next year?
A workable vaccine, or at least no more murder hornets.
What tickled your funny bone?
Learning that interview pull quotes will always be the most unfortunate things you said.
