Malachy Murphy was born on December 4, 2005. He was born in London, UK. As of 2023, he is 18 years old.

Malachy’s parents, Cillian and Yvonne, relocated to Ireland so their kids could remain closer to their grandparents. Moreover, Cillian, who had raised his son in London, realized that Malachy had started to speak in an English accent in his pre-teens.

This also influenced Cillian’s decision to move back to his homeland. Talking about his family’s relocation to Ireland, Cillian Murphy gave a rare interview in which he disclosed,

“I’ve always been very proud of the fact that I am Irish, and my wife is Irish, and the kids were of a certain age, we wanted them to be close to their grandparents. There are fewer people here, that was a consideration.” 

The Irish Times Theatre Award winner added,

“It was the best decision we made, coming back, 100pc. It really was. I think that’s a narrative of Irish people to go away and to come back, you know? It seems to be. I would rather be in Ireland. Certainly, in my game, it seems people go away for long periods to kind of establish themselves or whatever it might be, to prove that you can play other parts other than an Irish person and to come home.I just really like Irish people.”

In an interview, Cillian also talked about the relationship between his two sons and said,

“They’re 16 and 14.It’s great. They have the same age gap that me and my brother have, so it’s nice to see them just being brothers and being pals.”
