Today marks the feast day of St Gobnait, the daughter of a sea-pirate and protector of beekeepers.

Believed to have lived in the 6th Century, Gobnait is still celebrated in Ballyvourney, Co Cork, the Aran island of Inis Oirr and Dún Chaoin in the west Kerry Gaeltacht. (Watch the video in full above)
