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.
Monkstown Parish Church is a large Church of Ireland building which dominates the centre of the village. Built on a steep slope, there is room for a large choir vestry and rehearsal space underneath the east end of the church (not to mention the extensive, mysterious catacombs recently restored for use as meeting rooms for the local A.A. group).
The organ was built by Gray & Davison in 1898 into a large chamber in the chancel. Unfortunately, there is no side-opening on the chamber and as a result the egress of sound is less effective than it could have been.
One of the more unusual features of Wexford is the twin churches in Rowe Street and Bride Street. In the same spirit, two identical organs were installed in the churches by Telford in 1858. The organ of Bride Street has remained unaltered and was the subject of a historical restoration by Keneth Jones in 1987; that in Rowe Street has been altered over the years and further work was recently completed by Walkers.
The organ of Loughrea Cathedral is sited in the west gallery. There are two manuals of 56 notes, and a pedal-board of 30 notes.
