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 organ now in Christ Church Taney was the original organ in Christ Church Bray. When Bray's current organ was installed, this organ was moved to St. Paul's Bray where it remained for many years. When Kenneth Jones moved into St. Paul's (it was their workshop up until recently) the instrument was moved into storage and eventually in 1989 it was brought to Taney.
There was a previous Forster and Andrews organ in Taney but most of the pipework was discarded or used in other Jones projects.
Two manual & pedal electro-pneumatic. The case on the north aisle, facing westwards, was built in 1754 by John Snetzler. The instrument originally had four manuals.
Consecrated in 1843, St Patrick's was among the first of the Dun Laoghaire-area churches to be built. Originally part of Monkstown Church of Ireland parish, it became it's own parish in a matter of years.
The organ dates from 1885 (it seems all Forster & Andrews organs in Ireland were built within a ten-year period), and was tonally altered on one or two occasions over the years, most recently by Stephen Adams and Co.
