This one is pretty close (Downey’s Polka):

Polkas are sometimes hard to ID, because many are very similar but are considered to be distinct tunes. And there are many Gan Ainm polkas. Good luck!

This is an interesting take on the tune, so I’ve moved your transcription for posterity to the ‘Comments’ for the linked to polka MTGuru was kind enough to ID and offer…

Thanks, seems quite reasonable.
