Michael J. "Mick" Murphy (1897 – 18 October 1955) was an Irish hurler who played as a goalkeeper for the Limerick senior team.

Born in Limerick, Murphy first played competitive hurling in his youth. He made his first impression on the inter-county scene when he joined the Limerick senior team during a golden age between 1918 and 1923. Murphy went on to play a key role for Limerick for over a decade, and won two All-Ireland medals and two Munster medals.

As a member of the Munster inter-provincial team on two occasions, Murphy won one Railway Cup medal. At club level he is a five-time championship medallist with Young Irelands. Murphy also lined out with St. Patrick's.
