 Our Description

The Irish Penal Rosary was a single-decade rosary used in Ireland during penal times when religious objects were forbidden.  The crucifix has various symbols of the Passion:  a hammer for the nails of the cross, a halo for the Crown of Thorns, a jug symbolizing the Last Supper, cords for binding which recall the sourging at the Pilar, the spear used at Calvary, a cock and pot which illustrates an early apocryphal legend relating to Judas, the betrayer, and a roasting cock which suddenly came to life and crowed, thus prophesying9. the Resurrection, three nails used for the crucifix.

The rosary beads all have a shamrock on them.
