The Rambling Man is sad to report the untimely death from cancer of one of our favourite actors, Tom Murphy who passed away on Saturday night at the age of 39.

Murphy is perhaps best know for his roles in the hit movie Adam & Paul and his part in RTE’s series Pure Mule. He was a most talented actor and had won a Tony award for his role in The Beauty Queen of Leenane in 1999.
