More notes

That video has more notes than the transcription

Missing Notes

All of the notes to the melody are in the ABC notation, however , somehow they did not all make it to the Sheet music transcription.

Re: O’Carolan’s Lament

This tune was recorded by Clannad amongst others and is called Cúmha (lament) Eoghan Rua ó Néill.
A “cúmha” or “caoineadh” is a very slow air.
Try this played slowly..https://thesession.org/tunes/907
