Turtle brings his audience on an extraordinary tour of the world through the eyes of remarkable Irish characters such as the Carlow-born intrepid explorer who was born without arms or legs; the Laois man who unveiled the Statue of Liberty; the Sligo woman who became the mistress of the King of Bavaria and the Galway man who discovered Lake Tanganyika and translated the Kama Sutra.
Turtle Bunbury is a best-selling author, historian, public speaker and TV presenter. His books include the Vanishing Ireland series, Easter Dawn – The 1916 Rising and his latest bestseller, 1847 – A Chronicle of Genius, Generosity and Savagery. He is a frequent contributor to newspapers and magazines such as National Geographic Traveller, The Financial Times and The Irish Times, along with television programmes, Who Do You Think You Are? and Genealogy Roadshow.
