In the run up to Christmas, we have invited some of Ireland’s leading Film & TV talents to take part in IFTN’s festive Q&A.

Earlier this year, Bríd Ní Neachtain won the IFTA for Lead Actress Film for her performance in Róise & Frank, not long after appearing as Mrs. O’Riordan in the IFTA-winning The Banshees of Inisherin. Ní Neachtain also starred in Advent this year, which had its World Premiere at the Newport Beach Film Festival last October.

Bríd Ní Neachtain’s career spans film, television and theatre. Among her most well-known work is her tenure as Rita O’Connor in Ros na Rún from 1996 to 1999.
