Saer Goban (c.600 - ):
Goban Saer was a legendary figure, reputedly born in Turvey, Dublin. He is said to have constructed many ecclesiastical buildings, mainly in the north of the country, and ascribed to him are the towers of Kilmacduagh and Antrim. It is said by some of the annalists that he became blind in old age as a punishment for the exorbitant charges he had made for his services. Near Ballycastle, County Antrim, there are ruins which are said to be Goban Saer's church. No fewer than eight saints named Goban appear in the martyrology of Donegal.
