Aileach was a trad folk band formed in the late sixties featuring Dinny McLaughlin (fiddle), Bernard Heaney (guitar and vocals), Pat McCabe (accordion) and Brian McRory (banjo). The band's heyday was the mid-70s when the released two albums on EMI and toured extensively in Ireland, Europe, and America and appeared on TV several times (including The Late Late Show and The Embankment on RTE). They scored a minor chart hit in Ireland with a version of Phil Coulters "Lullaby" in July 1975. Over the years the band has featured several other musicians including Curly Coyle, Nicky Bryson and Seamus McLaughlin.
