Four comments

Another tune by harpist Maire Ni Chathasaigh taken from the Dan Ar Braz album Finisterres (played in a set with Ril An Suaimhnis). The b part might not be 100% right - it’s worth listening to the tune from the album as it’s played with alot of swing. Probably won’t appeal to "pure drop" traditionalists but features some great playing from Donal Lunny, Sharon Shannon, John McSherry and loads more.

Missing bit of copper

There seems to be a problem with the notation in the B-part where the 4th bar is missing a bit. Try this and see if it works better after I shifted the bar lines and added a z2 rest at the end. I hasten to add I don’t know the tune and am just guessing here.

Sorted this out now. Thanks for the feedback!
