This is not a visit to satisfy the history buff. There is very little detail of Murphy's role in the 1798 Rebellion or of the Rebellion itself. There is one remaining wall of a cottage in which he lived. Plenty of farming machinery to look...More

I had never heard of father Murphy I am ashamed to say before visiting his centre. Lots of nooks and crannys to pop your head into the past. Simplier times and a fun playground and maze for the children.
