Murphy was a drunk member of the The Outsiders, a group that nearly devastated Hibernia.


He made one appearance in The Kings of Clonmel.

When he was approaching Captain Padriag's tent, he was stopped by Quinn, the sentry. Murphy was known for slurring his accent badly, showing disrespect by not addressing the captain by his formal title (accosting him simply Padriag), and making frequent "legitimate complaints".
