Murphy is known for telling people, “I’m a Donegal man, my home (and heart) has always been Donegal, where the third generation of Murphys still run the family store, ‘Murphy of Ireland.’ ” Murphy resides in Westchester County, NY with his wife Ani and sons Jack and Aidan but remains close to his family who still live in Donegal. His favorite quote, “We are our father’s sons,” comes from Douglas Hyde, the first President of Ireland, and reflects his great admiration for his father.
