The Welsh speak of hiraeth pronounced as heeryth which translates as (I believe) longing.
That's about right; in fact there's a bit in the the song "We'll keep a welcome" which goes "We'll kiss away each hour of hiraeth, when you come home again to Wales". I think there's a song with the title "Hiraeth" as well which I have seen translated as "Longing". Personally, I think that the closest translation in most cases is "homesickness".
