St Abigail of Ireland Peg Doll

15.00

St. Abigail

St. Abigail of Ireland, who lived during the 5th of 6th century, is painted holding a beehive as she is the patron saint of beekeepers. Each doll is 3.5 inches tall, hand painted, and sealed to ensure durability. These peg dolls make excellent gifts for children as they allow children to learn and interact with the saints in a tactile manner.  They also make great gifts for those named after the saint or are of Irish heritage.

Feast Day: February 11

St. Abigail of Ireland, also known as St. Gobnait or Deborah, fled her home due to a family feud. After a dream telling her to seek her “place of resurrection,” she journeyed and eventually founded and became an abbess of a monastery. She spent much of her time caring for the sick. She became a beekeeper and used the honey to heal others and the bees to chase off evil miraculously.


Each peg doll has a card with a short biography on it. These peg dolls were hand painted with love and care by an Orthodox woman in Cincinnati, OH.
