Description: Oral history interview. Willie (born 1932) and Lily (born 1940) Murphy both spent most of their working lives at Urney Chocolates, where they met. Willie explains that he was adopted as a baby, and was reared by the Corcoran fmaily. At the age of fifteen he joined Urney where he worked in the Labels Department. He describes the work there, the designing and creating of attractive packaging for the products. Lily, nee Cantwell, joined Urney in 1954 at the age of fourteen. She worked in the Moulding Room, making chocolates, until 1965. This recording is very descriptive and paints an audio picture of factory life in a very positive environment. The length of this interview is forty one minutes and thirty six seconds.
