Have you tried setting MASTER_SORT in /etc/mk.conf?
(see /usr/pkgsrc/mk/defaults/mk.conf)

Sites seem to be listed in /usr/pkgsrc/mk/fetch/, and most do
not have irish mirror listed, maybe you also need to add
MASTER_SITE_XXX+= ftp://your.nearest.mirror to /etc/mk.conf

(I haven't tried these, but they don't seem unreasonable ideas to try.)
