Forster and Andrews, Hull (1869)
Derek Verso & Co. (1993)

In 1869, one year after the consecration of St Paul's, Forster and Andrews made their first visit to Ireland to install this instrument. Initially situated front and centre of the church, when the building was extended the organ was moved to a chamber. There it remained until 1993 when Derek Verso & Co. carried out a major rebuild.
The instrument was redesigned and rebuilt with a new case and console (incorporating the original keyboards). Long-discarded - but well preserved - dummy pipes (found in the crypt) were incorporated into the new side-facade. A great number of new stops were added and a 16-memory combination system included.
