Two comments

The Glamorganshire (hornpipe)

This is a Welsh harp hornpipe, also known as Pibddawns Morgannwg.

A slightly different version (or variation?) in Tro Llaw, a collection of 200 Welsh hornpipes from the National Library of Wales, is as follows:

BTW, for ease of writing the ABC notation of hornpipes it is not necessary to insert the dotted notes (as in A>G) - it is always assumed in hornpipes.

Just to amplify my previous comment, just leave out the ">" wherever you would insert it for a hornpipe.
