In Ulster they are generally Mac Murchadha, Mac Murchaidh; the royal house of Leinster, Mac Morrough (Wexford) was Mac Murchadha. The Murphys of Munster are said to be a branch of the Wexford group which was divided into Kinsella, Kavanagh, Hendrick, Mernagh, all of which see. There was another sept in Roscommon. The first name Murchadh is still used in the O'Brien family. IF & SGG.
O'Morchoe: rare: Wexford. Ir. Ó Murchadha (Murchú). The aristocratic form of Murphy, q.v.
Ó Murchadha: Murphy: an sloinne is líonmhaire sa tír. Bhí, ar a laghad, trí chlann: Tír Eoghain, Sligeach agus Múscraí. Bhí an dream ó thuaidh ina dtaoisigh ar Shíol Aodha agus gaolmhar leis na Niallaigh - comh-shloinne, is dócha, le Mac Murchaidh, q.v. Bhí na daoine i Sligeach suite i dTír Fhiachrach agus scaipeadh go luath iad. Ceaptar gur craobh des na Cinnseallaigh an chlann i Múscraí (Corcaigh) atá leata ar fud na Mumhan anois. Ar ndóigh, ainm pearsanta fíor-choitinn a b'ea Murchadh - laoch mara, an bhrí atá leis agus dealraíonn sé go raibh i bhfad níos mó suime ag an sean-Ghaeil i gcursaí mara ná mar atá ag muintir na h-Éireann anois, a fhéachann ar an bhfarraige mar áit dumpála bruscair, gan tuiscint ar bith ar an ndraíocht a bhaineann léi.
Ó Murchú: fairly numerous: Dublin, Cork etc. Ir.Lang. See Murphy.
