Another McGoldrick tune

From Aurora. This tune comes in sets of five measures. On the recording he takes the tune through a number of variations, I’ve written out one as the 3rd and 4th parts.

Reel or Polka?

I’m no expert on ABC notation, but aren’t the bar - lines in the wrong place? It looks like a polka.

Hmm, it may be an L:1/4 / L:1/8 mix-up, but you’re right.
