Sa carrière sportive
Avec son club de Graigueculllen, Murphy gagne huit championnats de Laois.
En dépit de son jeune âge, il joue avec l'équipe 'Minor' de Laois en 1936, et commence à jouer avec l’équipe 'Senior' de Laois en 1937. En 1937, Laois joue en demi-finale du Championnat d'Irlande de football gaélique. On appelle le jeune Murphy 'the Boy Wonder'.

Il gagne le Championnat de Leinster en 1937, 1938, et 1946. Sa dernière apparition sous les couleurs de Laois GAA se passe lors du championnat de l'Irlande en 1953, contre Wexford.
