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.
The city of Armagh is the religious capital of Ireland. As such, there are two magnificent cathedrals named in honour of St Patrick, who lived there for a time.
The 1840 Walker organ in the Anglican cathedral has been rebuilt countless times (mostly by said firm, but also by Meates Bros, Evans & Barr and Wells-Kennedy), however, it still maintains most of its essential "English cathedral" character.
The organ is situated in the choir gallery at the back of the church, and faces sideways across the gallery. It has one manual of 56 notes and a pedal board of 20 notes. The action is mechanical throughout.
The Church of St Augustine is situated in the very centre of Galway city, and serves one of the city parishes. The organ is located in the back choir gallery, and has quite a spectacular case with 16' pipes forming towers on either side. The action is mechanical throughout, and the swell pedal is of the older weighted type, which can be either fully open or fully shut but needs the weight of the foot to keep it in any other position. The three manuals each have 56 notes; the pedal board has 30 notes.
