Murphy's Brewery Ireland

James J. Murphy founded Murphy's Brewery in Cork, Republic of Ireland in 1856 with his brothers William, Jerome, and Francis. By the start of the 20th century it was producing 100,000 barrels. English Brewer Watneys held a 51% stake by 1969, but pulled out two years later and the company was rescued by the Irish government. The company entered receivership in 1982 and was purchased by Heineken International in 1983. Murphy's now exports to more than 70 countries.
