Murphy, John, a Gaelic poet, born in the County of Cork, in March 1700, is stated by O'Daly to have been distinguished for the beauty and pathos of his elegiac compositions. He was the preserver and transcriber of many Irish historical tracts, and the patron of a bardic session held annually for some years at Charleville.
