"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.

    Just what I was looking for.

    I bought this as a Christmas gift for my younger brother. He was delighted with it, and I like it too. The cross is not made of an expensive metal--I think it's really just silver oxidized metal--but it's fine for its use, and I like the masculine appeal of this rosary, since it was gifted to a young man.

    Irish Penal Rosary

    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.

    not very durable

    broke after 2 weeks in my pocket. One of the marble split. Felt like soapstone rather than marble. nicked very easily

    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.
