Turtle Bunbury was born in Dublin but raised in Lisnavagh House in County Carlow. Studying History has been a lifelong passion and he has published a wide range of works across travel and geneaology also. You can see his extensive list of work here.
The History Festival of Ireland, curated by Turtle Bunbury, will take place at Duckett’s Grove, County Carlow on Saturday, 15th & Sunday, 16th of June, 2013. Over 40 leading historians and thinkers from Ireland and abroad will resolve and confound in equal measure, audiences will be given plenty of time to debate and question, and a handful of stage performances of a historical tendency will compete for attention with author interviews and other miscellany relating to everything from ancestry to warmongery.
