VIDEO: Schoolchildren honour Boeing jet's journey to quirkly glamping site with unique version of 'Yellow Submarine' Newsdesk Newsdesk

The arduous journey of the old Boeing 767 jet up the west coast of Ireland has been captured in song by these schoolchildren.

The plane, which was bought by entrepreneur David McGowan for his ‘Quirky Nights Glamping Village’, is 159 foot long and weighs 50 tonnes.

It departed from Knockbeg Point on a hoverbarge at 5.30pm earlier this month bound for the Sligo camping site - but the travel wasn't a;; plain sailing. 

To honour the journey, school kids from Owenbeg NS penned a song to the tune of The Beatles favourite 'Yellow Submarine'.

Quirky Nights Glamping Village, posted the video to their Facebook page with a message to the kids involved: 'Massive high fives to all the children from Owenbeg NS who all worked together in school to come up with a song about the 'big yoke'.
