Not all English names have an Irish equivalent; this one doesn't.
there are no actual Irish names starting with K because there is no K in the Irish language but you can find Irish names with English spellings such as Caoilin - Keelan Caitriona - Katrina
It would be the same as English, a large number of such names have no Irish equivalent.
Not all names are "translatable" into Irish Gaelic; it would be the same as in English.

Not all names have Gaelic versions.
Many aspects of Irish culture; Irish dance, music, and language were banned by the English along with Catholicism during Irish history. All the towns, counties, and provinces in Ireland were given anglicized names. When Ireland regained its independence, it reincorporated the Irish language back into the culture. Irish is also not a completely dead language, it is not like Latin. There are areas in the country which are predominately Irish speaking and RTE has many television programmes in Irish. All signs have both the Irish and the English versions of names. Learning Irish is needed to pass secondary school. Irish is also a main part of slang: PÃ³g mo thÃ³in=Kiss my butt. What's the craic?=What's going on? What's up? The majority of Irish placenames, family names, and many given names are from the Irish language.

There are two reasons some Irish may carry English surnames. Most bear anglicised versions of native Gaelic surnames but there are also families of English ancestry bearing them. The Statutes of Kilkenny mandated Irish living in the Pale to adopt English surnames. Some names are of Norman origin or associated with the Catholic Sean-Ghaill (old English).
