The Irish Pipe Organ Page is a website devoted to the pipe organ on the island of Ireland. It contains news, organ specifications and much more.
One of the more unusual features of Wexford is the twin churches in Rowe Street and Bride Street. In the same spirit, two identical organs were installed in the churches by Telford in 1858. The organ of Bride Street has remained unaltered and was the subject of a historical restoration by Keneth Jones in 1987; that in Rowe Street has been altered over the years and further work was recently completed by Walkers.
This instrument has two manuals and pedals, and mechanical action throughout. It is positioned at the back of the sanctuary, and rises spectacularly above the altar.
Situated on a hill behind the Dundrum LUAS bridge, St. Nahi's is a historic church surrounded by a large graveyard containing the graves of many famous people.
Previously, the music in St. Nahi's was provided by a large harmonium (which is still in the church but is, sadly, almost unplayable). In the early 1990s a small one manual pipe organ built by Telford and Telford (originally in another church) was installed.
This delightful seven stop organ is situated at the back of the church in the corner and is more than adequate for the little church.
