I transcribed The Waterford Boys (a la Ronnie Drew) to abc notation, https://thesession.org/tunes/19050 and I'm not really sure I got it right, especially how the erm phrasing goes - the first triplet at the beginning, for example. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5AYjA7wVuo is what I used, that and a bit of memory.

Appreciate any improvements or comments!
