In 1812 an organ was purchased and a gallery erected for it at the western end of the nave.

In 1861 a new organ was procured at a cost of £300 from Telford and Telford Organs Builders of Dublin. The organ was removed in 1965 as it was in a very poor condition and the on-going costs seemed impossible at the time.

In 2007 a new organ was moved and restored by Neilands of Wexford, from the Closed Church of St. Michael-on-the-Mount-Without in the City of Bristol, England. It was installed on to the North Bay of the Crossing of the Great Nave.

Three Manuals?

Is that a third manual I see in the picture entitled "Swell Stops"? Is it a silent manual (originally a choir division, perhaps) or am I just seeing things? Looks like a nice organ, and some nice modelling by Fionn!
