Valencia, Athletic Club, Real Sociedad and Villarreal fulfilled the pass to the round of 16 of the Copa del Rey, where the Bilbaons were spared the elimination in penalties against Elche, while Tenerife was charged (2-1) to Valladolid and Badalona forced Granada to fall into extra time.The ‘che’, current champion, made his debut in the ‘K.O.’ tournament with a victory by the minimum in Las Gaunas (0-1). The career of Ferran and his center measured a Maxi Gomez only in a small area at 15 minutes sent on the scoreboard until the end. The Logroñés finished better the first half, with a ball to the crossbar and a lot of danger carried by Rayco and Ñoño.In the resumption the Logroñés, a brave Second B team in his idea and electric in his attacks, was also better. Valencia tried to calm the game and finished the game better, with occasions again from Maxi and Ferran to not have released with suspense. Much more he had to suffer an Athletic who was out in the penalty shootout when he failed two of the first three pitches.The Basques seemed to put the direct at five minutes with a goal to the career of Iñaki Williams, a pass from Iñigo Martínez. Before the break, Chaves tied with a comfortable shot in a small area and after a good overflow play by Josan. Athletic tightened with the changes of Muniain and Yuri, although without generating danger.

The stops of San Román to Raúl García and Unai López knew to the round of 16 in Martínez Valero, but Yazine, Iván Sánchez and Tekio, in the fourteenth penalty, failed to resurrect Gaizka Garitano’s team.Granada had another ration of suffering in this Cup, with a victory in extra time in Badalona. In the middle of the storm that resists leaving the area was a header from Gonalons in the 102nd minute, to the first post of a corner kick, and another goal by Carlos Fernádez in 110 ‘those who gave the pass to Granada. The Andalusians also started well with a goal from Koybasi in two minutes. Robusté tied for the Second B team and extended the Catalan dream until he gave them gasoline.Tenerife is ‘loaded’ to ValladolidIn addition, the Real won (2-0) to Espanyol in a duel controlled by the Basques. Barrenetxea made the 1-0 in a good play as the closing of the first half. The great mood of the picture ‘perico’, which finds life in league with the arrival of Abelardo, did not shine in Copa and Isak doubled the Basque income half an hour from the end. Wu Lei was able to cut in the first and clearest of the visitors, but did not change the triumph of those of Imanol Sheriff.Villarreal also thrashed (3-0) a Girona that accused more than eleven of changes, especially without Stuani, his best weapon in attack. The ‘submarine’ emerged in the second half of a Montilivi also shaken by the storm, where all the goals of Funes Mori, Cazorla and a Samu Chukwueze arrived in the center of the change and signed one of the goals of the tournament.In addition, Valladolid was the only First to fall on Wednesday, to join Mallorca on Tuesday, Alavés and Getafe between the two previous rounds, during his visit to Heliodoro Rodríguez López Stadium. El Pucela gave away the first part but in the second he started punishing with one of Las Palmas as Sandro. Joselu tied for the locals and Daniel Gómez classified Tenerife as a penalty committed by Diego Alende on Dani himself.
A major new development has been revealed, and a famous landmark could be getting a facelift, following the establishment of a local conservation group, who are dedicated to restoring O’Doherty’s Keep in Swan Park, Buncrana, as well as the construction of a visitor and heritage centre, and landscaped gardens on the site.The background work for this exciting local project has been in preparation for some time, and the group have now agreed a long-term lease with the owner.With the encouragement and permission of the National Monuments Service and Office of Public Works to move ahead, the group are pleased with the positive response and interest shown so far. Speaking about the project, spokesperson for the development group Ronan O’Doherty said, “The first phase of the project includes sensitive but essential investigations and surveying of the Keep itself and the adjacent site, by specialists including conservation architects, archaeologists, ecologists, quantity surveyors and structural engineers. It will involve topographical land survey as well as laser scanning of the monument.”“This phase of the project will take some 4-5 months to complete which will result in the compilation of a comprehensive Conservation Plan for the Keep and surrounding site and will form the basis of future plans.”“This feasibility study will cost money however, and while funds are available from various sources, such as LEADER, we have an obligation to raise funds ourselves, and to put it into context, we will require approximately €50,000 to complete feasibility study alone through a combination of private and public funds.” “But we are really excited by the project, and we believe that the site is of such historic significance locally, and in terms of the origins of the O’Doherty name, that there is merit in what we are trying to achieve. We are calling on the O’Doherty Clan, as well as local people and the worldwide diaspora to assist us in reaching our fundraising goals.”“We have set up a crowdfunding site, which has just gone live as well as a website, to bring attention to the cause. We will also be hosting an open night to give the public an outline of our plans for the site.”The small castle, or keep, is closely associated with the origins of the town of Buncrana, and was occupied by Sir Cahir O’Dochartaigh, who rebelled against crown forces and sacked the city of Derry, before being killed by English forces at the Battle of Kilmacrennan. Following his death, the Keep was granted to Sir Arthur Chichester, who leased it to Englishman Henry Vaughan.Further restoration work was carried out by the Vaughan family who occupied the keep until 1718.
