Our Irish Rosary is a very personal, single decade of the Rosary. The piece dates back to the Penal times when it was forbidden to practice the Catholic faith in Ireland.
“The company was the brainchild of my grandfather Thomas, when he and some of his oldest friends formed The Irish Consolidated Bead Company on the 28th November 1945 . The aim of that company was to produce Rosary beads for the Irish and overseas market, and was based in a small workshop in Terenure Place, Dublin. Some of the earliest products produced were rosaries made of horn, wood and Connemara Marble. In 1947 he supplied rosaries to the world’s first duty-free shop in Shannon Airport.” Stephen Walsh.
Today we continue this family tradition of crafting rosary beads made with our natural gemstone, hand lifted from our quarry in Lissoughter, Recess Co. Galway.
