"An Paidrin Beag", in the Irish language "Paidrin" means Rosary and "Beag" means small. "The Little Rosary" is a single-decade rosary used in Ireland in the Penal days, when it was forbidden to practice the Catholic faith in Ireland.
Place the ring on the thumb and commence the recitation of the Rosary in the normal way. On completing the first decade move ring to first finger and so on for each decade. Each bead is made of genuine Connemara Marble, found only in the West of Ireland.

Irish Penal Rosary
Laurene Ruth(Crescent City, CA, December 17, 2015)
The rosary is not only very well made, but beautiful in the connemara marble "beads". It will fit my needs very well as it should not tangle in my hands while driving like regular beads sometimes did. The construction is very sturdy and attractive! My Pastor, Father Greg, was very impressed when he blessed it for me.
With me 30+ years.

My original was bought in Ireland. Many have been bought and given as gifts ever since. Best Uses: Constant reminder; Cons: I prefer plain crucifix; Pros: More beautiful with time
not very durable

Disappointed with quality

I could see through the shrink wrap when I received this item that one bead was missing; perhaps it had fallen off and was somewhere in the box, but I did not open it to find out. In addition I was disappointed at the quality of the metal parts, which appeared somewhat flimsy. I returned it.
i love it
