FAMOUS DONEGAL HOTEL TAKES A STEP CLOSER TO REOPENING

first_imgThe Shandon Hotel.The reopening of a well-known Donegal landmark hotel has taken a step closer after a drinks license was sought for the premises.The Shandon Hotel and Spa in Portnablagh was sold recently for approximately €800,000 at auction in Dublin.The hotel was once valued at €6 million at the height of the property boom. Solicitor Brendan Twomey applied for a drinks license for the hotel this morning.Mr Twomey said his client, a Mr McCarthy, had been called to England on urgent business.He added that the sale had only been completed last week.Judge Paul Kelly said he would need to hear evidence from the new owner in court and adjourned the matter until May 20th. Receivers were called into the Shandon in 2012, and the hotel was subsequently closed which resulted in multiple job losses.The Shandon had recently invested €1.5 million in a state-of-the-art Spa facility prior to its closure that was regarded as one of the best in Ireland.The news that the hotel has now been bought will be a welcome boost to the hotel industry in Donegal.The Shandon hotel overlooks the beautiful Marblehill beach in Portnablagh and is a just stone throw from the buzzing seaside village of Dunfanaghy.The hotel will now be expected to re-open in the next number of weeks, and it is hoped will give another boost to the tourism industry in the locality.

England Euro 2016 squad: Barkley and Rashford IN, Drinkwater and Townsend OUT

first_imgRoy Hodgson has included Marcus Rashford and Daniel Sturridge in his England squad for this summer’s European Championship, with Andros Townsend and Danny Drinkwater the men to miss out.The Three Lions boss had to cut three players from his provisional 26-man squad by Tuesday evening.Hodgson had already confirmed Manchester City midfielder Fabian Delph would not travel to France after picking up an injury.Now, following a two-week training camp and friendly games against Turkey and Australia, he has also decided to omit Drinkwater and Townsend.Manchester United starlet Rashford is one of five strikers named in the travelling party – continuing the 18-year-old’s stunning rise.Rashford only made his professional debut in February but has made a stunning impact for United and netted on his international debut against Australia last Friday.Hodgson has also included Sturridge despite concerns over the Liverpool forward’s fitness.Sturridge has missed the past two friendly games with a groin problem but resumed training on Monday and is deemed a gamble worth taking.Ross Barkley’s place had appeared to be under threat after a disappointing end to the season with Everton and a below-par cameo performance against Australia.But the 22-year-old has been preferred to defensive-minded Leicester star Drinkwater and is one of several central midfield options, along with fit-again duo Jack Wilshere and Jordan Henderson.With Hodgson opting to take an abundance of central midfielders – and five strikers – Newcastle winger Townsend also misses out.England face Portugal in their last warm-up match on Thursday before heading to France to kick off their Euro 2016 campaign.The Three Lions are in Group B and will take on Russia in their opening game on June 11, before facing Wales on June 16 and Slovakia on 20 June.England’s 23-man squad for Euro 2016:Goalkeepers: Joe Hart (Manchester City), Fraser Forster (Southampton), Tom Heaton (Burnley).Defenders: Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Chris Smalling (Manchester United), John Stones (Everton), Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur), Ryan Bertrand (Southampton), Danny Rose (Tottenham Hotspur), Nathaniel Clyne (Liverpool).Midfielders: Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur), Ross Barkley (Everton), Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Adam Lallana (Liverpool), James Milner (Liverpool), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Jack Wilshere (Arsenal).Strikers: Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Jamie Vardy (Leicester City), Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United).
