St. Michael’s Church, Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh
Has St. Michael’s acquired a new organ?
Sort of! St Michael’s organ had suffered quite a bit over the years, it was originally built by Telford and Telford and rebuilt by the Irish Organ Co some years ago, using most of the original pipework. However, they tryed to “stretch” the specification from a 2 manual to 3, this was not altogether successful. Back in 2000, the instument (as your photo shows) was taken apart and rebuilt, using much of the existing pipework. The second photo shows only the skeleton of the swell box. Attached is an article from a local paper, with a photo of the almost completed case, prior to the reinstatement of 3 original Telford Angels from the original organ.
