There are four Murphy bells in the Cathedral Basilica of St.John the 
Baptist, Saint Johns, Newfoundland.

West tower:  three bells cast in 1854 and 1857 (to which O'Byrne 
subsequently added five trebles to make an octave chime).

East tower:  one bell cast by Murphy in 1850; weighing two tons, it 
was the largest cast in Ireland up to that time.
