I did the obvious thing - I contacted the carillonneur!

He tells me:-

The two bass bells added in 1998 are by Royal Eijsbouts of the 
Netherlands. According to this company's specifications, the details 
are -

Pitch A Sharp (keyboard note C Sharp): 2,940 kg., diameter 1,725 mm. 
(named for St. Oliver Plunkett),

Pitch C (keyboard note D Sharp): 2,080 kg., diameter 1,537 mm. (named 
for Blessed Dominic Collins). 

This makes the A# bell 57-3-14 and the C# bell 40-3-22
