Few things reflect the beauty of creation more strongly than the deep and varied greens of Connemara Marble, found only in a small corner of Ireland’s Atlantic seaboard. These Rosary Beads, handmade in Dublin with marble cut from our quarry in Co. Galway, are part of our long tradition with Irish Rosary beads. We have been hand making rosary beads since 1945.
The first Irish Rosary beads were made by monks of the great settlements like Cashel, Clonmacnoise and Glendalough. Using the horns of animals, they fashioned beads of natural beauty and simple strength. Their strength in particular put them much in demand in medieval Europe, where the rosary was a widely observed meditation, and personal link with the Creator.
These beads continue that tradition, combining natural beauty with practical strength. You may also like to see our Book of Kells Rosary Beads
