### There is also what seems to be a 24 bar version on a 78 rpm recording:

Michael Gaffney on banjo / John McKenna on flute - the second in a set of two barndances, following ‘The Ballroom Favourite’:

- but running out of time and steam this one was cut off at the end…

### Michael Gaffney’s

After McKenna/Gaffney’s record. I’m presenting this as 32 bars, on the 78 they only got through it twice and I think they were hurried on by the recording engineer, thus they cut out 8 bars. Just a theory but who knows. Dunno if there are other instances of barndances/schottisches with irregular lengths like that.

I forgot to mention 😉 ~ YES! thanks Kevin, my suspicion as well…

Another version of this is listed as a hornpipe here: https://thesession.org/tunes/8653
