"The Other Clog" reorded on The Moneymusk by Hammy Hamilton ia a different tune.

There’s a different version in my tunebook (one of the first polkas).

"The Other Clog" = 32 bar polka repeated with a variation on the A-part

I’ve come across this tune several times but as a mere 32 bars. The C-part (3rd) given here is just a variation of the A-part (1st), and the D-part (4th) is identical to the B-part (2nd)… I’ve also come across this played in G, as given here, and also in A Major…

This is the first tune on the album Roseland Barndance by North Cregg. It is supposed to be a traditional polka from Sliabh Luachra. Anyone knows its title and origin?

I know this one, if a different take on it, and I’ll see if I can dig out a name for it, but "gain ainm" is not rare where polkas are concerned… 😉
