Turtle delved deep into every available archive and produced an extraordinary amount of hitherto unknown facts about our building and the businesses that have operated there. We’ve been delighted to work with him ever since - as a public speaker, as an author and as the formidable researcher that he is.

It was a pleasure to work with Turtle and we were very happy with the final book. He completed our book efficiently, accurately, on time and in a very personable manner.

The Docklands Authority and the local community were both hugely impressed with Turtle's chronicle of the area, by its accuracy, its depth and presentation. The images, design and overall layout added up to a very attractive publication. We would be delighted to recommend Mr. Bunbury for similar projects.

From day one Turtle has been a delight to work with. His professionalism, knowledge, detective capabilities, and love of his work have been most reassuring. Turtle has amazed and dazzled me many times. I have no hesitation in telling you that I have been enlightened by the details and particulars, previously unknown to me that Turtle has uncovered.

historical insights

McCarthy's Irish Whiskey

McCarthy's Irish Whiskey have generously come on board to sponsor the March 2020 launch of Turtle's book, 'Ireland's Forgotten Past.'


Turtle unearthed the story of Louis-François Cartier, who established the world-famous jewellery and watch-making brand, now owned by Richemont.


Turtle penned the remarkable tale of Werner Siemens, the German founder of Europe’s largest telecommunications and industrial manufacturing company.


James Kelly’s vow that the Chicago Tribune would be ‘neutral in nothing’ and ‘independent in everything’ has stood true for over 170 years.


I was truly delighted to receive such a thorough history, well in excess of original requirements, and even more impressed with your delivery against an exceptionally tight timeframe. It made my part of the project so much easier to have such a well-written piece to work with, and made it very easy to show the wider committee that they have received excellent value in this undertaking. 

Patrick Quinlan, 



We are delighted with Turtle’s work. Just what we were looking for.

Turtle Bunbury’s fascinating history of Kilshane House has given my watch substance and enlightenment to bring the past into the future.

Jane de Roquancourt, Owner,

Kilshane House, County Tipperary, Ireland


When the main house burned down in the 1798 rebellion, all  records were apparently lost.  And then along came Turtle Bunbury who not only filled in the gaps since 1798 but went all the way back to  megalithic times. He literally left no stone unturned. Now, thanks to Turtle, we have a real sense of history and place. Such knowledge underpins our desire to leave as good a legacy behind us as those who came before.
