Situated in the small town of Raphoe, St Eunan's is an ancient church, with parts of the building dating from as early as the 12th Century. It owes much of its current appearance to a 1730s rebuild and a later restoration by Sir Thomas Drew.
The organ (the work of a yet unknown builder) does its best to fill the space, but is admittedly undersized.
Visually, the instrument is aesthetically pleasing, with gold front pipes and a case of dark oak, classical in style.
Tonally, it is pleasantly voiced and in good playing order.
The instrument was restored in 1997 by Wells-Kennedy. The layout of the console combined with the specification would suggest that it was originally a one-manual organ.
