I am not sure of the builder of this Organ...
It is completely out of action now and has not been used in a few years which is a really shame.
The Chapel has a fantastic accoustic and i'm sure the Organ would sound great should it be in working order...
At the moment there is a small electric organ which is in use.

The original organ in St Catherine's Church was built by Telford and was located in the gallery, stretching across most of the back wall. It was rebuilt By Evans and Barr where it was divided into two cases on either side of the window (mostly for aesthetic purposes). By the start of the 1990s it was clear that (no thanks to the Evans and Barr work) the organ had reached the end of its natural lifespan. So it was decided that a new instrument be built that would serve the church well for years to come. The firm Derek Verso and Co. was chosen for the job.
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.
