The Irish Penal Rosary (An Paidrín Beag) is unique to Ireland, dating back to penal times when the Catholic religion was outlawed in Ireland and it was forbidden to have religious objects. The one-decade Penal Rosary was concealed in the hand or up a sleeve allowing Catholics to pray without being detected. The ring of the Rosary Beads was moved from thumb to finger to finger to keep track of the decades prayed. The Penal Cross is replicated from an original dating to c.1722, when the characteristic short-arms were developed to due to the tendency of the standard long armed cross to break off.
