St Donard

St Donards Belfast

The six bells in the tower were installed and dedicated to the memory of Canon A. Moore on 26th November 1949.

Until this point in time there had been one bell, installed as a war memorial bell to those who had died in the two World Wars.The original bell, having been recast, remains in the tower as part of the new peal, and is rung as the “five minute bell” on Remembrance Sunday each year.

It was in 1947 that a fund was inaugurated to perpetuate the memory of Canon Moore who died on 30 July 1946.Sufficient funds were raised to purchase the present day ring of 6 and were installed as a memorial.The bells were cast and installed by Taylor’s of Loughborough and are in the Key of A Flat, the whole peal weighing 32 cwts 2qrs 11 lbs.

Five of the bells are inscribed:-

“1949. In memoriam, Alexander Moore, Rector 1906 - 46”.

Practice: Tuesday 19.00 - 20:15 (September - June)

Service Ring: Sunday Morning 11.00 - 11.20 Sunday Evening 18.30 - 18.50
