As always, the Connemara Penal Rosary exceeded all my expectations. Thank you for your wonderful work!

I picked up the rosary beads in the Post Office this morning. They are absolutely lovely. I like the spacing between the decades. God bless the handiwork you are doing. The quality of your rosary beads is exceptional and the fact that they are handmade makes them so special to me. I love them!
Joan G., USA

The two sets of beads are absolutely fabulous, thank you... Everything about them is exquisite - workmanship, the beads, beautiful purse & presentation- but most of all, I love how they feel, so light yet all there!! I can't wait to pass them on & then I'll be treating myself!

I love the history of the (Penal) rosary. I carry it in my pocket constantly, and, whether or not it is psychological, I've found the deepest sleep when it's under my pillow. Thank you for creating it.

Thank you for the 'Paidrin Beag' rosary. The design, from the hand made links, to the Penal Cross, and the packaging are really special. Connemara marble is lucky to have people like you that elevate its true beauty and value.

I just came home to your wonderful creation! The custom Penal Rosary you created for me in silver with the 12mm Bethlehem olive wood beads and silver end caps is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much for your time and thoughtfulness in creating this. I love it!

Mary, you created the most beautiful rosary beads. I carry mine as a talisman and am heart connected to it. Thank you for your knowingness and talent!

I asked Mary to create something special for my grandmother's 95th birthday and we decided on a 'bespoke' Rosary. Dealing with Mary from start to finish on this project was fun, more importantly is the fact that her level of professionalism exceeded my expectations. My grandmother was thrilled with her gift and commented on how wonderful the presentation of the gift was including the remarkable Rosary inside Mary's unique packaging. Simply Beautiful! Thanks Mary.

Your beautiful penal rosary has just been delivered by the postman. I love it! Thanks for your extra effort to make it to my taste. Unexpected I discovered the little surprise pouch. Thanks!
Charlotte D., Waterford, Ireland

I just had to write and thank you for making the Penal Rosary which I have just received as a birthday present from two dear friends who recently visited you. How beautifully made it is and so tactile that I am sure I will say the rosary more often as I can hardly put it down! In fact it is in my hand as I write this letter. I had no idea that the persecution in the 17th and 18th centuries was so severe - please accept a genuine apology from an Englishman on behalf of my country. I am sure that anyone who is lucky enough to have one of your rosaries will treasure it - thank you again.

Mary, thank you very much. I wear both the rosary and the rosary bracelet every day and get a positive vibe and feel closer to my dogs, your work has brought me a great deal of comfort… I can’t thank you enough and cannot put into words how happy I am.
