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.
