In the Irish language, “Paidrin” means Rosary and “Beag” means small. The ” Paidrín Beag” did not come about purely as a convenience, though it is small enough to use in your pocket or on your wrist whereever you are.
This very personal, single decade of the Rosary 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 and the people found more and more ways of continuing their devotions without being detected. An Paidrin Bead is one result of their determined ingenuity. Made of genuine Connemara Marble mined from our quarry in Lissoughter, Recess Co. Galway.
The bracelet comes with two charm medals, a St. Patrick Medal and a Traditional Celtic Cross medal, both are made in goldtone.
Measures Approximately 0.60″W with a Spring Ring Clasp.
