Sauce Creek is derived from Irish sás, 'noose', a name referring to the fact that waves and currents make it very difficult to leave this cove by boat.   Faill an tSáis is the 792nd highest place in Ireland. Faill an tSáis is the most northerly summit and also the most easterly in the Brandon Group area.

Landslide at Sauce Creek
by aidand  13 Aug 2012
In June 2012 there were reports in the national newspapers of a major landslide near Sauce Creek. The landslide was much less dramatic than the press reports. To view the landslide follow the cliff top along from the creek towards Brandon Point for about 400m. The landslide was about 30 metres wide and 250 m high. It is not visible from the waymarked route.

Sauce Creek is well worth visiting, You can follow the waymarked route - red markers 'Suilóid a tSáis') from the carpark at Brandon Point. Allow about 4 hours for a fine walk out along a dramatic bit of coastline and back by some quiet country roads. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/694/comment/14758/
