    At first glance, I would say EYE-lish. Actually my book club recently read a book where a character was named Eilis, and we were all unsure how to pronounce it; however, we're in Canada so we don't see a lot of Irish or Gaelic names.

    AY-leesh or AY-lish.

    I know an Eilidh (AY-lee) so I'm familiar with the sound the Ei combination makes. Taking Lidh to be Lee, I would assume Lish to also have the long 'ee' sound, giving Leesh, but knowing Gaelic pronunciations can be a bit irregular the shorter 'i' giving Lish (rhyming with fish) wouldn't be implausible either.
