“An Paidrin Beag” translates from the Irish language to “Little Rosary”. This is a single-decade, handmade Irish rosary with Connemara marble beads. The piece dates back to the Penal times when it was forbidden to practice the Catholic faith in Ireland. This suppression only served to increase the faith of the Irish people. Priests lived in hiding and Mass was celebrated on the open hillsides. People found more and more ways of continuing their devotions without being detected. “An Paidrin Beag” is one result of the people’s determined ingenuity. Hidden undetected in the folds of a skirt or trouser the little rosary made the perfect solution.

Crafted with genuine Connemara Marble hand lifted from our quarry in Lissoughter, Recess Co. Galway. We are proud to have been hand-crafting rosary beads here in Ireland since 1945. The rosary measures approx 10 inches long with a silver-tone Celtic Cross crucifix along with metal links and a keyring. Presented boxed with the “An Paidrin Beag” history card. Take the comfort and reassurance of your Rosary with you wherever you may go.
