Q4915 : An Sas (Sauce creek)

taken 13 years ago, 3 km from Teer, Kerry, Ireland

An Sas (Sauce creek)
An Sas (Sauce creek)
The name Sas means trap, and in this case it refers to the fact that so much flotsam is washed into this cove. In the last century 2-3 families lived at sea level (the cliffs around reach over 300m)scratching a living from the few flat areas of land available to them. Erosion has destroyed most of the evidence of occupation and the original pathway leading down has long since collapsed.
