An dro with Balkan influence?

I found this tune by a casual mp3 download, maybe recorded by Dubliners (with Clancy bros. too). It’s not a polka, in the beginning sounds as an dro, then on 2nd and final staves it sounds like a Balkan tune. Guitar chords are often not on main accents. I tried to transcribe a possible standard score, writing many repetitions. Dubliners (?) play more times each staff as follows:
1. 4
2. 2
3. 2
4. 1
5. 1
6. 1
7. 2
for every staff you must respect the repetitions.

It’s a bit weird!

Holy Cow that’s a fast midi file!
