Comments Vanishing Ireland

  • Lesa

    Vanishing Ireland is a beautiful, but sobering book. Fennell and Bunbury set out across Ireland to capture and preserve the stories of ordinary Irish people, people who worked the land, worked with horses, worked on the water, celebrated the music. Vanishing Ireland by photographer James Fennell and travel writer and historian Turtle Bunbury contains wonderful close-ups of each person interviewed. But, it was first published in 2006, and even before it went to press some of these eighty and nine [...]

    What an exceptional series by Turtle Bunbury and photographer James Fennel. It's the perfect gift for any member of the Irish diaspora. Beautiful to behold and interesting to read, it's a great addition to any library.

    I dare you to pass up a book by someone named Turtle Bunbury. I couldn't, and I'm glad to have fallen for it. Lovely pictures - he has a real feel for the people and places of Ireland.


  • Diane

    Very interesting, will have to get my hands on the others in the series.


  • Ashley McKnight

    Incredibly beautiful as the elderly of Ireland reflect on life and what has passed from Irish society. In many ways, it is sad to see what we have lost and are losing. Time is a strange thing, change is inevitable. Accompanied by beautiful pictures.


  • Ally Bunbury

    Special - heartwarming writing and wonderful photography. Dream team.


  • Rick Burke

    Elderly Irish men and women talk about their lives in the past of a more simple Ireland. It's sad to see what the world has lost and once had.


  • Bronwyn Mcloughlin

    Beautiful and touching and a window on a world that is long gone and simultaneously more unforgiving and more communal than we will ever know.
