I don't remember where I got this one from, but if it's not Irish it's certainly pretending to be, so it might be a good choice if you're asked to call an "Irish Night"! As I learnt it, it was 40 bars, so I added the final swing, and doing an "Irish" hold certainly makes it feel a little different.
4 x 48 bar Irish reels or polkas. Here's a couple of 32-bar Irish polkas as an idea
: Do-si-do, turn, stars, cast and weave, cast, arch, swing.
