There is the famous large murphy bell at saint Francis Xavier Cathedral
Adelaide South Australia still chimed from time to time like the recent
A.N.Z.A.B Festival earlier this year.
other murphy bells in Australia listed in john.D.Keatings book"bells in
Australia" 1979 eddition include
goulburn roman catholic cathedral of st's peter and paul / saint Augustins
catholic church yass 1868
saint kilians catholic church bendigo / saint christophers cathedral
canberra 1853/ saint francis Xaviers cathedral geralton W.A. dated 1970 but
not hung untill 1918.the book also mentions a 12CWT murphy bell resting on
the ground floor of a dominican church in Wahroonga Sydney
how many of these are still in place or use i am yet to discover.
Are there any known photos in Existence of Mathew O'Byrne or his Fountain
Head Foundry in Dublin
