Pirys Doredh (28 December 1625-20 August 1688) was a Cadenzan nobleman and was Duke of Cadenza as Pirys II from 1666 to 1674. He was elected Earl of Do'rediq in 1656, in line with the laws of succession in the earldom of Pammez after the death of his father left four potential claimants. His sobriquet, Doredh, means of Do'rediq and was given to him to distinguish himself from Pirys of Lema, a leading member of the Earls' Council when Doredh was elected.

As duke, he led Cadenza during the renewal of the Cadenzan-Kelonnan wars in the 1670s. Despite success in organising the defence of Cadenza's Kelonnan colonies, he was heavily criticised for his decision not to assign any warships or military presence to the island of Torim Viqalka, which led to its loss to Kelonna. He took only a minor war in republican politics after his term concluded in 1674.
