I'm thinking it would be 'Saoirse agus Aontacht'

Please inform me if 'Aontacht' gets modified, or if I'm missing fadas anywhere.

You've got it right - no changes needed - but if space is a concern, there are two ways to abbreviate "agus", so you could use ether of these alternatives:

Saoirse 's Aontacht
