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.
In 1812 an organ was purchased and a gallery erected for it at the western end of the nave.
In 1861 a new organ was procured at a cost of £300 from Telford and Telford Organs Builders of Dublin. The organ was removed in 1965 as it was in a very poor condition and the on-going costs seemed impossible at the time.
In 2007 a new organ was moved and restored by Neilands of Wexford, from the Closed Church of St. Michael-on-the-Mount-Without in the City of Bristol, England. It was installed on to the North Bay of the Crossing of the Great Nave.
Booterstown Catholic church dates from the early 19th century and occupies the site of a 17th century church, built during the reign of the Roman Catholic King James II. The organ was originally built by renowned Dublin organ builder, John White, probably in the late 1850s. It underwent various modifications over the years, most likely including the substitution of Swell strings for other stops. In 1978 Kenneth Jones of Bray altered the Great organ, replacing the Dulciana with a Fourniture and revoicing one of two 4' Flute stops (!) as a Principal.
This organ was built in mid 2012 by Kenneth Jones and associates (in the classical style), as the finishing piece to the newly restored church. It is situated in the gallery at the back of the church and speaks across the gallery. The console is reverse-detatched, the key-action is mechanical and the stop action is electric. All stops have their own ranks except for the Bass Flute which is extended from the Subbass. The Salicional shares its bass with the Gedackt.
The little church has superb acoustics and the organ sound full and majestic from the gallery.
