From Rathangan in Co. Kildare, the former Newbridge College pupil joined Munster after five seasons at Leicester Tigers where he was top try scorer in 2008/09.
The switch to Munster in 2010 started well and Murphy opened his account for the province with a brace of tries in his third outing (v Glasgow Warriors in Firhill) in a season that saw him appear 25 times for his new club.
His continued good form into the following season earned Murphy a two-year contract extension in March 2012.
Scored his first try of the 2013/14 season in the 26-10 win against Gloucester at Thomond Park in the Heineken Cup.
Murphy made his 70th Munster appearance against Connacht in December 2013.
