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 builder of this organ is unknown, but Derek Verso surmises that it might have been John White, or possibly John White bought it from a French builder (Cavaillé-Coll?). The action is mechanical throughout; the manuals each have 56 notes and the pedal 30.
The author (ROD) is unclear whether the specification below represents the organ before or after Derek Verso's work, but suspects that this is the original stoplist.
Unusual features of this instrument include (from Derek Verso's notes for BIOS conference held in Maynooth, July 1991):
The organ of the Roman Catholic church in Ennisrone was newly built in 2010. It is positioned at one side of the choir gallery, and makes maximum use of the limited space available.
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.
