That's how you do it, all right!
As you have discovered, major cross is circular on the bottom, and country
tuning on top--with the "right" note on blow 10 (for the cross tuning).
Irish stuff is relatively easy (although WBB is actually an American tune).
Nice one, and hope your family can forgive you!
