This is the waltz that accompanies the hornpipe. Both written by Charlie Lennon. Maire O’Keefe does a nice job of it on her album.
If I recall, the waltz is on Sharon’s album and the hornpipe is on Altan’s.
Maire O’Keefe plays the waltz AND the hornpipe as a ‘piece’ on Track 4 of her album, "Coisir — House Party". You can listen to a snippet at http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000002VXS/102-9071232-3040935?v=glance

The ABC transcription was identical to the one given here, note-for-note, even the spacing and layout were identical. Here’s the comment ~
Written by Charlie Lennon after sitting in the Wicklow ( or Co Dublin ?) mountains and listening to the repeated notes made by bees.At least that’s what i recall the story to be.
A pair with the hornpipe of the same name. I think they are meant to played as a suite, as on Maire O"Keefe’s album House Party.
