The Story of the Irish
• From the Bronze Age and the early Christian, Viking, Norman and Tudor eras, to the Easter Rising and the birth of an independent Ireland, this presentation is an inspiring voyage through the long history of Ireland.
'Turtle somehow managed to captivate a group filled with some of the most creative and accomplished entrepreneurs on the planet.'
'Turtle’s piece was particularly thoughtful for our overseas visitors, with its mix of history and whimsy, bringing events to life through characters and personalities. He is as at ease entertaining international audiences as a local, domestic one. This is history made accessible, enjoyable and interesting. Turtle is a pleasure to deal with; responsive and flexible. I would thoroughly recommend him for such events.'
A most entertaining and hugely informative talk ... interesting and witty presentation ... putting all into context, which holds one’s interest and obviously the result of extensive research.Maureen Beary RyanFriends of the National Gallery of Ireland .
Turtle is an engaging, entertaining and erudite speaker. As a popular author and TV personality, he has added hugely to the attractiveness of various Pegasus lecture tours. Pegasus is happy to recommend him to both general and academic audiences.

You are a brilliant story teller ... you also created a bridge to our English, US, Australian and Bavarian friends in Munich.Ann DempseyMunich Irish Network
'Turtle gave us two first-rate talks. He is deeply passionate about his subjects and his passion is contagious. We received tremendous feedback after each talk.'
