I didn’t see any transcription of this waltz that I heard played by Solas. I found it was very nice, so here’s a one.

Re: Doireann’s

Such a great waltz! Is Mick McAuley the composer? I don’t have the liner notes.
It looks like your ABC is in 3/8 (or L:1/4 rather than 1/8). Doubling the note lengths in the ABC will make it easier to read.
Here’s a quick pass at fixing that and moving the pickups within the repeats:
