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.
St Patrick's Church of Ireland (or "Powerscourt Church") was built in a perfect cross shape. However, from the inside it looks as if there is only one transept. This is because the other (the North transept) houses the organ and vestry. The archway of this transept is fronted by the organ's facade and access to the vestry is through a "hidden" door set into the paneling on the right of the console: Very neat and tidy!
The organ itself is a small Peter Conacher instrument, a bit older and larger than that of nearby Kilternan C of I (also by Conacher).
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.
This instrument is in the west gallery of the church, housed in a split case either side of a large window. The key-action is mechanical, and the stop-action electrical. It has a balanced swell pedal, and two composition pedals.
The manual registers are controlled by draw-stops, while the pedal stops are tabs - presumably the pedal unit is a later addition.
