Turtle Bunbury on the Irish Diaspora

Historian Turtle Bunbury, author of new book The Irish Diaspora: Tales of Emigration, Exile and Imperialism, shares stories of Irish emigrants and their descendants. Through the compelling stories of the great Irish pioneers who left their homeland and in the process profoundly influenced their adoptive countries, Bunbury takes some overlooked events and characters and weaves them into an entertaining, and often surprising, history of the Irish abroad. Turtle Bunbury is an award-winning travel writer, historian, and author based in Ireland. He is the author of many books on Irish history, in particular the bestselling Vanishing Ireland series, with photographs by James Fennell, as well as The Irish Pub and Ireland’s Forgotten Past.
