As a youngster Murrihy learned songs from singers in his family, including his mother and two of his uncles. He started playing music professionally locally with notable County Clare musicians; Michael Sexton Senior, Jimmy Ward and David Culligan and then went on to create his own group that was very much in demand called “The Bannerman”. Due to his growing popularity, he was asked to play and record two albums with the infamous Kilfenora Ceili Band. For the past 12 years, PJ has teamed up with accordionist, Seamus Shannon, and they have been performing their own specialized Irish traditional and country songs which gets everyone up on the dance floor.
