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.
