This is a lovely Parish Church, on the main Shore Road in Newtownabbey.
The Organ has 3 manuels and was originally built by Foster & Andrews, Hull in 1877

The Organ has been rebuilt by the Irish Organ company (date not known)

The original Console has been replaced with the current one - probably by the Irish Organ Company during their rebuilt which may have taken place in the late 70' early 80'

The Organ has a warm tone, but since the rebuild it has become very under scaled for the large building. It would have been a charming Organ if it hadn't have suffered the rebuild by the Irish Organ Company, but in the right hands - and restored back to it original state it would be a fantastic Instrument.
