Welcome to the Irish Pipe Organ Page!
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 organ is situated in the choir gallery at the back of the church, and faces sideways across the gallery. It has one manual of 56 notes and a pedal board of 20 notes. The action is mechanical throughout.
This organ was originally built by Rieger (for another building) but was rebuilt by Kenneth Jones for the college. Visually it is quite a compact instrument, the case is not much taller than eight feet. It was probably designed for a small church or even a home, but from what I remember the chapel at St Colman's is quite sizable.
