His hotel[edit]

Didn't a hotel he owned get burned down during the Rising? If I can find a source for it I think it is worth mentioning. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:15, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

William Martin Murphy not an only child![edit]

It has been suggested that William Martin Murphy was an only child - see, for example, History Ireland. Margaret Murphy was the older sister of William Martin Murphy. She was born 16 Apr 1843. She married John Cullinane, a retail merchant of Bantry, Co. Cork 7 Jan 1872. As further proof, she is listed in the 1901 Census of Ireland as a widow, the Aunt of the head of the household of James Fitzgerald Murphy, one of the sons of William Martin Murphy. In a recent biography this 'only child' myth was given as a partial explanation of his behaviour during the Lock-out! I am very glad that Wikipedia has not repeated this falsehood. For the sake of clarity, I am the great nephew of John Cullinane. PeterClarke 12:15, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
