This is gáirleóg in Irish (gs. gáirleóige, ds. gáirleóig; npl. gáirleóga, gpl. gáirleóg, dpl. gáirleógaibh).
I've just read the word for a clove of garlic, literally a nail (a finger nail) of garlic: ionga gáirleóige.

For the plant itself there is also "creamh". Although with various adjectives put on the end it can refer to types of leeks. For example "creamh garraí" is the three cornered leek.
