Born in Ballykenneally around 1709 - 1791 The exact birth date of Piaras Mac Gearailt is not clear but is believed to be in 1709. He was born in the townland of Ballykenneally in the parish of Kilmacdonogh, Ballymacoda Co Cork and his parents were Michael FitzGerald Senior and Mary Power. The house where he was born is not the present day Ballykennealy House but an old house on the same site which later became an outhouse of Ballykenneally House and is still in existence. Records indicate that the present day Ballykenneally House was built in the early part of the 19th century which would have been after the death of Piaras Mac Gearailt
Piaras Mac Gearailt is buried in The Hill Cemetery
