Eoghan Murphy (born April 1982) is an Irish Fine Gael politician. He was elected as a Teachta Dála (TD) for the Dublin South–East constituency at the 2011 general election.[1]

He was educated at University College Dublin (BA, English & Philosophy) and King's College London (MA, International Relations). He was a Dublin City Councillor from 2009 to 2011, having been elected at the 2009 local elections for the Pembroke–Rathmines electoral area.[2]

Murphy does not believe Ireland's official policy of military neutrality is realistic, and supports ending the "triple lock" in its current form, whereby any permanent member of the United Nations Security Council such as Russia or China has the power to veto Irish military deployments to peacekeeping operations overseas.[3]

His brother is Love/Hate actor Killian Scott.[4]
