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.
This instrument was built by Evans and Barr in the early 20th century and originally had pneumatic action and 58 note manual compasses. It was later rebuilt with electro-pneumatic action by the Irish Organ Company, who extended the manual compasses to 61 notes and added, on a separate chest, a mixture to the Great division, as well as extending the Pedal Octave to provide a Choral Bass at 4' pitch. The great upperwork sounds as if it has been loudened at some stage, and the bass octave of the Swell Geigen Diapason is outside the swell enclosure.
This organ was built in 1981 in the neo-baroque style (but can handle romantic works surprisingly well for an instrument of this aesthetic). Although it has a very small specification for the size of the building it sounds very commanding from its situation at the front of the church behind the altar. It features a reversed, detached mechanical console, electric stop action with a comprehensive combination system, and brightly coloured pipes!
It is almost exactly the same tonally as the organ of Holy Redeemer Church, Bray.
Although an old school, the chapel was only built in the 1960s. Soon after this the Irish Organ Company installed a two-manual electric-action organ in the back gallery of the church. The instrument comprises of two cases of functional display (one on either side of the back window) and a detached console in the centre. The Great is located in the left case, the Swell in the right, with the Pedal divided between the two. Although front pipes on both cases look identical, the left side is the Great Open Diapason while the right side is the metal Pedal Bourdon.
