I don't know where you can get those tunes. comhaltas.ie had some in ABC format but i can't read it myself so i'd imagine its not much use. They're both in D if that helps.

Best way is to work it out by ear. If your having a lot of trouble working it out then sheet music is probably the only other way.

FTONY starts abg-cEadg-fedd. (the E is higher octave).

Galway girl starts ffed-defdd-deddfab

You seem to have done the melody rather than the whistle bit.

www.thesession.org

You can look at the sheetmusic or the ABC format and there's a massive selection of tunes.
For eg. The Kesh... http://www.thesession.org/tunes/display/55

Hope it helps and good luck with your playing

This is an old thread but seeing as it was dragged up again...

You could do worse than just following this by ear and watching her fingers, it's not that hard!
