I believe the answer is:

noisier

Here is my best explanation:

'louder' is the definition.
('noisy' is associated in meaning with 'loud')

'holding head in irritation i snore unfortunately' is the wordplay.
'holding' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'head in' suggests taking the first letters.
'unfortunately' indicates an anagram.
The initial letter of 'irritation' is 'i'.
'i'+'snore'='isnore'
'isnore' is an anagram of 'noiser'.
'i' inserted within 'noiser' is 'NOISIER'.
