Organ will be played to mark its 134th anniversary

The Pipe Organ being installed in Enniskeane is at a point where it can now be played — though not all the pipes are connected up yet.

Monday August 20th, 2012 is the 134th anniversary of when the organ was first played at Mass in the Mercy Convent, Clonakilty, in 1878. To mark the anniversary, the organ will be played during the 10am Mass in Enniskeane Church on Monday August 20th. Everyone is welcome.

Renewed thanks to all who have sponsored a pipe in the organ. At this point, 347 of the pipes have been dedicated to named individuals and families. These, too, will be remembered in a special way at the Mass on Monday 20th.

Organ pedal board and one keyboard.

The organ has three sets of keys — two manuals and one pedal board. This photo (reverse angle) shows one of the manuals in place and the pedal board, ready for wiring.
