Known as an Paidrin Beag, this Rosary was used in Ireland during the Penal days when it was forbidden to practice the Catholic faith in Ireland. Each oval bead contains the image of an Irish Saint, while the Virgin Mary graces a heart shaped center bead. A metal Crucifix finishes the piece. An enclosed story card shows an image and history of each included Irish Saint. Paidrin Beag is made of wood and metal and measures 7" L. Made in Ireland.
