This name is interpreted as 'big Pierce' in the Ordnance Survey Name Book. However, An Seabhac reports that in his time, nearly a century later, nobody in the locality had an explanation for the name but they did not think it was related to the personal name Piaras. There is a lower peak to the N called Piaras Beag. On the saddle between Piaras Mór and Masatiompan is an ogham stone bearing an inscription which translates as: Ronan, the priest son of Camogann. There is a chi-ro monogram (representing 'Christ') above it and a Greek cross in a circle on the other side (Barrington, Discovering Kerry, 180).   Piaras Mór is the 81st highest place in Ireland.

Distinctive Summit
by Bunsen7  1 Apr 2018
This summit doesn't have much prominence but I was still able to make it out by eye from Banna beach briefly today, at least before cloud covered it again.

There was plenty of mist on Good Friday when I rambled up it too. Not to be missed. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/77/comment/19880/
