The Irish Pub – Media Coverage & General Applause

‘Delightful’ says The Irish Times. ‘Fascinating’ concurred the Independent-on-Sunday. ‘A brilliant history of the Irish pub’ declared Country Life. ‘A masterpiece of pub porn’ said the Sunday Independent. Turtle’s 2008 book ‘The Irish Pub’ – his third with photographer James Fennell – gathered plenty of the plaudits following its publication. It was selected as Bookseller’s Choice for Christmas by Hughes and Hughes and short-listed in The Irish Times Christmas Gift Special. The sumptuous hardback sold over 5,000 copies in its first 3 months.
