Stories told of St. Gobnait outline that she was born in Clare in the 6th century and later spent time on the Aran Islands studying under St Enda. Later, following a visit from an angel, Gobnait founded a church at Ballyvourney, where upon her search had come across a herd of nine white deer grazing. 

On Inis Óirr, a small ruined church, Cill Gobnait, remains on the island as evidence of her time there.
