Adding to the canon of 7/8 tunes

Here’s a slightly edited version of a 7/8 tune on Michael McGoldrick’s new CD "Wired". I’ve left out of the transcription the 13/8 bridge between Bm and Em versions of the first three parts, after which the last two parts follow, in Bm again.

My take on the bridge is:
K:Em
M:13/8

BdeB AGA Bc~B2 AG |1 BdeB AGA Bc~B2 AG :|2 BdeB ABd eg~e2 dB ||

Oops …

I just realized that what I thought was a single, but extended, tune is actually listed as two separate tunes. I’ll post the other one later under its own heading.
