This fine symphonic organ was built by George Benson of Dublin and Manchester in 1896 and inaugurated by W.G. Price, Belfast City Organist, in January 1897.
Compasses are 58 notes for the manuals and 30 notes for the pedal.
The organ underwent modifications in the 1950's and was restored by J.W. Walker in 1996, including electrification of the actions and piston system (originally tubular-pneumatic) and reversal of any tonal changes. Pistons are instantly adjustable by capture system and the swell pedal is mechanical and centrally sited.
The instrument is now in the care of Trevor Crowe, Ltd.
The organ is played at the 11.30 Mass on Sundays and at several concerts throughout the year.
