I am currently in the process of migrating the content shared here to a series of new websites hosted at

As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.

St Gobnatt

Gobnatt / Domna. The Irish saint, Gobnatt, is a version of the deity Domna, patroness of sacred stones and cairns,

Gobnait was born in County Clare in the 5th or 6th Century, and is said to have been the sister of Saint Abban. She fled a family feud, taking refuge at Inisheer in the Aran Islands. Here an angel appeared and told her that this was "not the place of her resurrection" and that she should look for a place where she would find nine white deer grazing....
Celtic lore held bees in high esteem believing the soul left the body as a bee or a butterfly. Gobnait added beekeeping to her life’s work developing a lifelong affinity with them. She started a religious order and dedicated her days to helping the sick, probably using honey as a healing aid....

So sorry to do this to you, but this post has been moved to my new site, The Pagan Calendar hosted at and can be found in it's entirety here: St Gobnatt
