I guess you know, but it is rarely mentioned, this is the same area occupied by the Lost Tribes of Israel as part of the Northern Kingdom evacuation by the Assyrians ~722 BC.  It is from all through here they exploded into history as The CELTS ~610 BC and dispersed to the west and northwest to become the dominant population force in Europe and America today.

While I don't know of any links between Noah and the Celts (except of course their blood link via Shem) which would explain their both being posted to this God-forsaken land, it does make for fascinating contemplation.

Agreed. What date are you assuming for the flood?
Ryan & Pitman, Noah's Flood, propose that Noah's flood was in fact the Black Sea flood that occurred in about 5,600BC. (Then, of course, we have those tales from Gilgamesh's time to deal with)

The Celts are hardly "the Lost Tribes". Linguistically there isn't any connection, nor are Celts Semites. One major way the "Lost Tribes" became lost was through intermarriage with the Canaanite tribes around them. They lost their culture and left their religion, unlike their cousins to the south.
