I have no idea where this tune is from but i do know there is a pub called Da Noost on the Shetland Islands. Got this tune a long time ago from Tommy Doherty, the box player from mayo

The tune is from Shetland. A noost is a channel or similar for pulling boats up to shelter. There are a few places in Shetland called Bacca - but essentially it is a tune commemorating a noost (noust) in Bacca.
