By Paul Devito: The Interns were formed in Portrush, County Antrim in the early 1960s by Paul Divito (vocals) and Vincent McGonagle (bass). They settled in Dublin for a time and were voted Best R&B Band in Ireland on two occasions. They toured Britain and Europe and played in Liverpool's famous Cavern Club. In recent years, some of the members joined forces with Henry McCullough to play with Buddy Guy at Belfast's Ulster Hall.
