Crom Cruach (The Bloody Crooked One) is likely a giant worm or dragon-like creature. A god mentioned in Dr.Dee's Necronomicon as a lesser concubine (or facet?) of Shub-Niggurath . Crom Cruach is said to lie under Stonehenge. His cult believe him to be all-knowing. In the Hyborian Age the grim god Crom (who is probably the “public face” of Crom Crauch) was worshipped in Cimmeria. Later he was worshipped by the Celts in Ierland. Its said that its worship was ended by St.Patrick, who destroyed the cult sign with a hammer. It posed as a pre-christian deity to obtain the souls of children and deceived his followers.
