Tom Murphy

Enniscorthy United

Tom Murphy of Irish Street was an outstanding creative midfielder with a silky touch who joined Enniscorthy United in 1968.

A stylish player with great ball control and distribution, he also had a keen eye for goal; Tom was the dynamo that made the team tick. Very much a player considered to be ahead of his time with his passing and quick-thinking, he left County Wexford for the U.S.A. in the 1970s to begin a new life.
