Jim lives quite a way from North Cork - he's in Clare, on the west coast.

I can find no trace of Glocc..(various spellings) as a real placename in Ireland. The Cork County Council report referred to by NightWing in the OP refers to the area around Kilworth Camp where the pub stood. It seems likely that it was a casual name for the area due to the (highly visible and well-known) inn - with the pub name deriving from the song. Mitchelstown, incidentally, is further north on the same road.
