Cruachan (IPA: /kɹwaxan/, KROOAKHAWN ) is a heavy metal band from Dublin, Ireland that has been active since the 1990s. They have been acclaimed as having "gone the greatest lengths of anyone in their attempts to expand" the genre of folk metal. They are recognised as one of the founders of the genre of folk metal. With a specific focus on Celtic music and the use of Celtic mythology in their lyrics, Cruachan's style of folk metal is known as Celtic metal. The band named themselves after the archaeological site of Rathcroghan in Ireland also known as Cruachan.

I hear you calling 
Your voice so fair 
I reach out to touch you 
But know you're not there

The summer is ending 
Clouds darken the sky 
As the rain starts to fall 
I weep and I cry

No more can I see you 
Now you have passed on 
The world seems so lifeless 
And cold with you gone

I look at the place 
We're we both used to lie 
And think of times past 
With a tear in my eye
