In the early, anxious days of the pandemic, Rory Nellis took a delivery at the family home in Belfast. His DJ friend Mark was outside with a loaf of bread, a home-baked gift at a time when many of the shops were shut and treats were scarce.

It was also a time when direct contact wasn’t allowed, so the best they could do was to manage a few words over the wall at the side of the house. Rory’s son Jack also shouted to Mark that he was missing school. It was a rare bit of social contact at their Ormeau Road lockdown.
