Dates when key work has been undertaken on current organ Additions to the organ were prepared for at the time of building
Dates of any moves that have taken place to current organ Originally built for the Presentation Sisters of Iona Convent and installed in their chapel in 1964.
Removed in 1966 when the Chapel had to be demolished due to structural failure.
Gifted to Notre Dame University for future installation in the Holy Spirit Chapel.  This never came to pass so the organ was obtained by Corpus Christi Church (which is right next door to Iona Convent!) and installed in 1998 by Pipe Organ Builders and Services.
Remedial work by Patrick Elms & Co in 2010.
