AN PAIDRIN BEAG - THE LITTLE ROSARY
Religious persecution in Ireland began under Henry VIII. (1540
till about 1731) The local Parliament adopted acts
establishing the king's ecclesiastical supremacy, abolishing the pope's
jurisdiction, and suppressing religious houses. Irish Penal Rosary
became popular as the ring could be put on one finger at a time
(beginning with the thumb) and then moved to the next finger until all 5
decades of the rosary were completed. This way it was hidden in the hand
of the pray-er so as not to be found. Dates back to the early 18th
century. The long cross was believed to be designed to go into the hand
more secretly - but the Tall Crosses which are all over Ireland
symbolize the reaching up to heaven.
