it's an 8x32 reel. Steve is certainly correct that no one is likely
to object to any good tune. The dance is alsot, if not entirely pdB
if that helps in your tune selection.
I assume you checked Originally Ours for the tune. If it's not there
than I suspect further search is useless, but I am not at home right
now to check myself.

I can find no reference to a reel of that name only a jig. The dance tutor says there is a reel of that name as well as the jig.
