MUrphys made the peal at saint Patricks Melbourne , they long ago ceased 
operation and a lot of their work was taken up by O'Byrnes fountain head 
foundry in james street dublin who cast the heavy 12 Bell chimes at Saint 
carthages in Lismore N.S.W Australia, witch i ring .
this 12 bell will be 100 years old in  a  year or 2 ,  in  my search for 
thier history , i see that a replica of them was cast for saint mells in 
longford ? in Ireland dose any one know about these bells ?
dose anyone have any photos of Mathew O'Byrne or his foundry ?  or D.R 
Vincent O'brien who gave a recital on the bells of saint Carthages when they 
were errected in the foundry yards in Dublin for testing ....? ..
Best wishes John Maloney

>Via my Liverpool Bells (www.liverpoolbells.moonfruit.com) website, I

>garden (as you do!). 'It was made by MJ Murphy Founder Dublin in 1878'
>I've not got pictures yet, nor do I know how big this is (It can't be
>as big as the Great Bell of Bradbourne!) but does anyone know if this
>firm still exists and have an address for them per chance?
>The chap also comments ' I inspected the church bell at St Bedes in
>Widnes last week end. This too was made by M J Murphy Founder . The
>date on the bell is 1879 and was a replacement bell at St Bedes as
>the church was opened in 1847'.
>Any help would be great.
