The surname sounds as if it might be a variant of Callinan / Callanan.  Lots of them around in Cork at that time.

Eg. here is a James Callanan baptised on 26 July 1831 in the parish of Aghada, parents Thomas Callanan and Mary Mahony of Guranne, right page, two-thirds way down from top of page:

There are several more around that time in the irishgenealogy.ie website church records:

Do you have more detail on parish and townland or his parents?
