test well water and if arsenic is present, install treatment technology and continue testing to ensure it’s working wash hands frequently and before eating wash fruits and vegetables before eating, whether they’re from the grocery store or a private garden follow freshwater fish advisories, which have been recommended for more than 15 years, to reduce mercury intake follow any closures of recreational shellfish harvesting areas Other measures that people should take are: A group of provincial and federal government experts has been established to further investigate potential health and environmental risks of tailings. The group is co-ordinated by the Department of Environment and Labour. The group was established in response to a recently released study. The study was conducted by Natural Resources Canada as part of its national Metals in the Environment program. The study showed that levels of arsenic and mercury in the tailings are higher than previously thought. The study also showed that wind or water erosion has moved some of the tailings from their original sites. One example is the beach at Seal Harbour, Guysborough Co. At the recommendation of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, Fisheries and Oceans Canada has closed this beach to recreational clam digging. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency will work with Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Environment Canada to test other marine environments. The group of experts is continuing to research the tailings sites. A map of gold mining districts is available on Environment and Labour’s website at www.gov.ns.ca/enla/goldmines . Photos of tailings and other information are also on this site to help Nova Scotians in gold mining districts determine if they may have tailings on their properties. Nova Scotians who have reason to think they may have tailings on or near their properties or who have other questions can call the provincial public inquiries line at 902-424-5200 in Halifax Regional Municipality or 1-800-670-4357. Calls will be directed to the appropriate federal or provincial agency for response. Nova Scotians are advised to avoid exposure to material known as tailings leftover from gold mining in the province in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The tailings are sand-like deposits of crushed arsenopyrite and other rock from which gold was extracted. The deposits include arsenic from the crushed rock and mercury that was used in the mining process. Tailings were dumped near mine sites. There is not likely any significant risk to Nova Scotians associated with these tailing sites. They are generally in remote locations and many are on Crown land. There is no current evidence of Nova Scotians becoming ill from mercury or arsenic from tailings. Nova Scotians near gold mine tailings can reduce exposure by practicing habits that are always recommended, regardless of proximity to tailings: don’t let children play around tailings don’t use tailings as fill for driveways, gardens or children’s sandboxes remove shoes after being outdoors near tailings, so soil won’t be tracked into the house
WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is taking a fresh look at a long-dead Mississippi flood project that the late Sen. John McCain once called “one of the worst projects ever conceived by Congress.”Environmental Protection Agency chief Andrew Wheeler confirmed Wednesday that his agency is taking a new look at building giant pumps in the Mississippi Delta.The Bush administration had killed the project in 2008, saying the pumps would cause “unacceptable” damage to wetlands and wildlife, and to the economy and recreation.Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant says two months of ongoing flooding wouldn’t have been as bad if the pumps had been built.Bryant took a helicopter tour of the flooded area. He tells reporters that he was in Washington this week lobbying the Trump administration to revive the project.Ellen Knickmeyer And Jeff Amy, The Associated Press

MONTREAL — The railroad involved in the fatal Lac-Megantic train derailment was granted creditor protection in Canada on Thursday.A Quebec Superior Court justice handed down the ruling after a request by Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Canada Co.[np_storybar title=”Graphic: The Lac-Mégantic Railway Disaster” link=”http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/07/12/graphic-the-lac-megantic-runaway-train-disaster/”%5D [/np_storybar]Justice Martin Castonguay told a Montreal courtroom he hopes the decision will limit the “judicial anarchy” of multiple creditors simultaneously seeking cash from the insolvent railway through separate legal avenues.Castonguay also criticized as “lamentable” the railway’s actions since the July 6 disaster that killed 47 people and destroyed much of downtown Lac-Megantic.“The court is not at all impressed with the conduct of MMA since the start,” he said without elaborating, shortly after granting the creditor protection.In court documents filed Wednesday, the company said it was seeking relief from its creditors under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act, a request made as it faces a growing number of lawsuits, legal notices and cleanup costs MMA estimated will exceed $200-million.The railway also stated in the filing that the Canadian firm has just under $18-million in assets and insurance coverage of $25-million, cash it has yet to receive from its insurer.The company’s woes also made their way into a U.S. court, where parent firm Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway Ltd. initiated proceedings Wednesday for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.Documents filed in the Maine court say the parent company has between $50-million and $100-million in estimated assets and between $1-million and $10-million in estimated liabilities. The bankruptcy-court filing was posted on the website of Maine’s Bangor Daily News.Ed Burkhardt, chairman of both firms, said in a statement Wednesday that the “obligations of both companies now exceed the value of their assets, including prospective insurance recoveries.”The unattended MMA train had a load of crude oil when it rolled down a hill and derailed in the heart of Lac-Megantic, a devastated town of 6,000 people that is still struggling to recover from the disaster.In Canada, Castonguay said future hearings on the matter would be presided over by another judge in the region of Lac-Megantic, which is about 250 kilometres east of Montreal. The next court hearing is scheduled for Aug. 23.“The people of (Lac-Megantic) have a right to know what’s going on,” said Castonguay, adding they should not be forced to make a two-hour drive to Montreal to follow proceedings.The Canadian Press
OTTAWA — Statistics Canada says the country posted a merchandise trade deficit of $1.1 billion in July compared with a revised deficit of $55 million June.Economists had expected a deficit of $400 million, according to financial markets data firm Refinitiv.The result for June was updated from what was originally reported as a $136-million surplus.Statistics Canada says imports rose 1.2 per cent to $50.9 billion in July, with gains in six of 11 sectors.Imports of consumer goods were up 2.4 per cent, while aircraft and other transportation equipment and parts rose 10.2 per cent.Total exports fell 0.9 per cent to $49.8 billion in July as energy product exports fell 6.7 per cent in July due to a 7.7 per cent drop in crude oil exports.The Canadian Press
Usually, it’s pretty easy to figure out why an NBA team got better. The Sixers, who were the NBA’s most-improved team this year, got Joel Embiid and an extra 18 wins compared to last season. Houston, 14 wins better, got MVP-level play out of James Harden, who’s been a perfect fit for new coach Mike D’Antoni’s pace-and-space offense.Then there’s Utah, a team that was 40-42 last year, yet has pieced together a fringe NBA title contender this season. The Jazz’s improvement isn’t as straightforward as the Rockets’ or Sixers’, though — they did it by tinkering with the margins of a roster that had missed the postseason for four consecutive years, and they’re capitalizing on their two young stars finally coming of age.Perhaps the best comparison for this Jazz team is the Indiana Pacers from three or four years ago: Rudy Gobert is the Jazz’s souped-up version of Roy Hibbert, the leader of a very stingy defense that forces a ton of midrange jumpers. Gordon Hayward is the analog to Paul George, a talented wing player who can score over just about anyone. And Utah’s George Hill is … George Hill, who joined the team in July following an offseason trade and is now the conductor of a Pacers-like slow-paced offense. And even that lofty comparison to the two-time Eastern Conference finalists may be selling this club short; the Jazz shoot and pass the ball better and far more than Indiana ever did.Much of Utah’s jump stems from two key trades that bolstered each of those areas. The first deal landed Hill, a respected veteran point guard1In exchange for the No. 12 pick, Taurean Prince, in a three-team deal, and the other yielded skilled forward Boris Diaw2Diaw cost the Jazz Olivier Hanlan, the 42nd pick in 2015, and a 2022 second-rounder.. Both players, who once played for San Antonio, have helped the Jazz become a rare team that has been able to replicate the Spurs’ style. Watch the Jazz for long enough, and you can see San Antonio’s influences baked into some of Utah’s offensive plays and sets; particularly when Diaw is on the floor3The Jazz threw more passes than any other team during the 2014 and 2015 seasons. The Spurs ranked third and fifth, respectively..Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/spursaction.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/utahspurs-likeaction.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.The team’s transactions weren’t the sexiest, which is reflected by the NBA’s national TV ratings, in which the Jazz still rank near the bottom of the league. But as of now, those two moves — plus the Joe Johnson signing — look prescient. Hill, despite battling injuries all season, forced opponents to guard the perimeter more honestly and logged a career-high scoring average. Diaw, Utah’s best passer despite playing power forward, finished with a team-high six assists in the Game One victory over the Clippers. And Johnson, who connected on 41 percent of his 3s during the regular season, had 21 points in the series opener, including the game-winning floater at the buzzer4There were a flurry of Twitter users who didn’t know Johnson played for the Jazz until they saw him hit the dramatic shot to win Game One.But the offseason moves alone wouldn’t have made the Jazz this formidable. Utah needed Hayward to take the next step. Among the most notable improvements that he has made: Hayward has grown considerably stronger, giving him the ability to be more aggressive and absorb more contact as he barrels toward the basket following curls and dribble handoffs. Aside from connecting on a blistering 69 percent of his shots at the rim this year — one of six wings to shoot that well on 200 shots or more — Hayward also managed to log a career-best 45 and-1 situations where he scored despite getting fouled. By contrast, he was blocked just 43 times all season. To put that into context, it’s pretty rare for wing players to finish with more and-1s than shots blocked in a given season; this year LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard were the only other wings to accomplish the feat5Among players with at least 30 and-1s.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/hayward2.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/haywardstrength.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.The other Jazz player who took the leap is also the reason the team’s die-hard fans can’t sleep at night: How injured is Gobert? It’s not clear how long he’ll be out with his knee hyperextension and bone bruise. The Jazz managed to squeak by without him on Saturday, but as Tuesday’s Game Two highlighted, the defense sans Gobert may be too porous to win this series6The Jazz have allowed the Clippers to shoot 79 percent from inside of five feet this series when using small-ball lineups, according to ESPN Stats & Information Group. That number shrinks to a more respectable 62 percent when Utah uses two traditional bigs on the court at once., let alone compete with Golden State, who will almost certainly be waiting for them in the conference semifinals.But should Utah get a healthy version of its best player back — and yes, Gobert’s incredible jump in offensive efficiency, paired with his stellar defense, makes him the club’s most-valuable player — the Jazz can make some noise. They owned the third-best defense in the association this year, behind San Antonio and Golden State, and excel at defensive rebounding and limiting team’s opportunities in transition. Playing the percentages, the defense surrenders the NBA’s lowest share of corner 3-point attempts, and the only true soft spot they possess on that end is by design: They rank near the top of the league in terms of how frequently they goad opponents into taking inefficient midrange jumpers.Yet their entire defensive scheme, which often calls for wings to switch assignments and aggressively crowd their opponents along the 3-point line, works to perfection because of Gobert’s incredible mobility and impact around the rim. Watch this regular-season sequence against Portland, for instance. Damian Lillard seemingly pulls the trigger on his shot a beat quicker than he normally would to avoid Gobert. Then Blazers forward Al-Farouq Aminu grabs an offensive rebound, but opts against going for the putback because of Gobert’s presence.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/scaredofgobert.mp400:0000:0000:15Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.When teams are actually bold enough to bring the ball inside against him7Opponents take just 31 percent of their shot attempts at the restricted area with Gobert on the court, down from 36 percent when he’s on the bench., it frequently turns out to be a mistake.Video Playerhttps://fivethirtyeight.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/gobertswat.mp400:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Gobert, who led the NBA in defensive win shares and blocks, held foes to 49 percent shooting from within six feet, 12.5 percentage points beneath their average and the best rate among centers8Among those who have played at least 50 games. Fellow Defensive Player of the Year candidate Draymond Green’s rim-protection stats were equally impressive, at 48 percent while holding players 13.2 points under their averages. But Green is considered a forward on NBA.com..As tense as this moment is for Jazz fans, the offseason may prove to be even more stressful. Hayward, 27, and Hill, 30, become unrestricted free agents at season’s end, leaving the small-market club — which has the league’s smallest payroll — with tough financial choices9The team also faces a tough decision on big man Derrick Favors, who’s getting a pretty high-profile audition with Gobert sidelined. as it seeks to build on its first 50-win season since the 2009-10 season with Hall of Fame coach Jerry Sloan.But those decisions can wait a bit. After all, winning — and doing it now, in this postseason, with this core group — is the strongest case a team like Utah can make to its pending free agents anyway.Check out our NBA playoff predictions.

The ship was under tow, she had no power she was powerless. She was surrounded by tug boats, whatever the problem it was clearly very seriousMichael Penn The Type 45 Daring Class destoyer is one of the fleet’s most advanced warshipsCredit:Raymond Wergan As HMS Duncan was towed back into port a spokesman for the Royal Navy spokesman said the vessel had experienced “technical issues”. Watching the crippled warship being towed back Michael Penn, a van driver, who was watching from Plymouth’s Jennycliff, said: “The ship was under tow, she had no power she was powerless.”He added: “She was surrounded by tug boats, whatever the problem it was clearly very serious.” The fleet’s Type 45 destroyers were hailed as the most revolutionary warships in the world when they were first commissioned into the fleet. But within a couple of years problems the ships started to report power failures, although the Royal Navy refused to admit there was a problem until this year. The most concerning incident involved HMS Daring, the first of class, in 2009 when on her maiden deployment to the United States the ship lost power in the Atlantic ocean. Since then there have been numerous operational incidents reported, including HMS Dauntless which suffered a power outage during a naval exercise in 2014.In January 2016 the MoD confirmed that repairs would be carried out on all six Daring class warships in order to make sure they are fully operational. A key factor in the multi-million-pound procurement of the destroyers was that they would not need a refit for at least 25 years, saving the naval budget significant costs in major dockyard maintenance periods. In 2014 the Navy established Project Napier, a long term plan to improve power on all six Type 45 which includes new equipment and an upgrade the diesel generator system to provide greater resilience and integration with the main engines. The estimated cost of repairs stands at £1 billion with many of the engineering parts including the diesel generators being bespoke items made just fore the Type 45 class.The incident aboard HMS Duncan comes days after the MoD confirmed that the Harpoon missiles – the only antiship weapon on the Type 23 frigates and Type 45 destroyers is to be withdrawn from service.As senior naval officers seek to make further saving to support the operational running costs of the new super carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth, the defence select committee warned that the fleet is seriously short of warships.In October 2016, Duncan, escorted by the frigate HMS Richmond, was dispatched by the Ministry of Defence to intercept and “man-mark” a fleet of Russian Navy vessels, including their flagship Admiral Kuznetsov, which were passing through the English Channel on their way to Syria.The destroyer then escorted the fleet out of the Channel and into the North Atlantic.A Royal Navy spokesperson said: “HMS Duncan experienced technical issues and will resume operations once a full assessment has taken place.” A Royal Navy Type 45 destroyer has been towed back into port just two days after it sailed following a total propulsion failure while taking part in Nato exercises.The Daring class warship, HMS Duncan, left Devonport naval base at Plymouth on Sunday take part in a series of maritime wargames with Spanish, Portuguese and German warships.But the 4,500 tonne hi-tech ship limped back into Plymouth on Wednesday under tow and shadowed by three additional dockyard tugs as well as the Ministry of Defence police.

The incident took place as HMS Duncan was taking part in routine manoeuvres off the Devon coast, known as Flag Officer Sea Training, to prepare her crew for operations. The incident is the latest in a series of electrical failures which have plagued the Type 45 fleet and forced the Navy to admit that all six destroyers need major repairs. All six Type 45s, which are based at Portsmouth, are fitted with a revolutionary integrated electrical propulsion system which drives the ship with “clean” power. But the power is generated from a diesel generator which has often failed to deliver enough energy, forcing the system to shut down – leaving weapons systems exposed and the ship vulnerable to attack.
Kissing actors in films is no fun, even if it is Leonardo Di Caprio, Joanna Lumley has disclosed.The demands of filming remove any excitement from screen kisses, the award-winning actress revealed at a charity event over the weekend.The 71-year-old actress may have starred alongside a string of stars over her career, but she revealed that screen couples are left chewing so much gum between takes that the process was more reminiscent of visiting the dentist. Diane Keaton last week called on-screen romances “the greatest” because they allowed her to kiss men without any consequences. Joanna Lumley at the Big Pink Party hosted by Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope, with Pollyanna Hope who lost a leg in an accident 10 yrs ago.Credit: Paul Grover for the Telegraph Lumley starred alongside DiCaprio in the 2013 film The Wolf of Wall Street, when she played the English aunt of his wife.Speaking at a dinner for the Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope charity, she said: “I did kiss Leonardo DiCaprio, about 15 times in fact.“But I’ll let you into a secret. It’s actually no fun kissing actors, no fun at all. There are so many takes and you both have to chew so much chewing gum. It’s like kissing someone in a dentist’s waiting room.”DiCaprio shared a kiss with Lumley in a scene where his character Jordan Belfort tries to sweet talk her into hiding his ill-gotten gains in Swiss bank accounts.He later praised his co-star as “an incredibly beautiful, charming woman” and said he had loved flirting with her in the scene. Lumley revealed the less glamorous side of on-screen kissing at a dinner for the charity which provides support to children who have lost limbs.She is the latest star to weigh in on the pros and cons of on-screen kissing. Keaton, also 71, has kissed actors including Morgan Freeman and Michael Douglas during her career.She said: “Think of all the men you get to kiss and you don’t have to pay the price”The relationship is perfect because you are in the story and it’s the greatest thing kissing a man in a movie.”People say it is hard, but they are wrong”It’s the best.

A historic ocean mineral resource expedition, using the Maersk Launcher, launches from San Diego on April 12 to further a mission to responsibly produce the world’s future metal supply from the deep-ocean floor. This is the first of five offshore campaigns that are part of a strategic alliance with Maersk, one of the world’s largest shipping groups.DeepGreen’s subsidiary, Nauru Ocean Resources Inc (NORI), will be carrying out extensive scientific and resource surveys within a 75,000-km2 contract area of the Eastern Pacific’s abyssal plain, granted to NORI by the United Nations’ International Seabed Authority (ISA). DeepGreen and NORI are developing technology that will allow the responsible production of polymetallic nodules, which sit on the ocean surface, and contain metals in growing demand and critical to global social and economic growth.The intention is that, when collected and brought to the surface using state-of-the-art technology, the polymetallic nodules — usually small enough to fit in the palm of your hand — will be processed for metals such as cobalt, nickel, copper and manganese. Those future metals are becoming increasingly harder and more difficult to find on land, but are in great demand for technologies such as electric cars, battery storage, wind turbines and many more digital technologies essential to a sustainable future.“This voyage is a continuation of the work required in preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement that NORI aims to submit to the ISA, a necessary step to move the Exploration license to exploitation license, which will enable NORI to bring these essential metals for our future to the surface where they will be treated onshore using DeepGreen’s patented processing technology, which aims to produce zero waste,” said Gerard Barron, CEO of DeepGreen. “We believe these future metals can be produced responsibly, protecting ocean health, while avoiding the deforestation, pollution and child labor that too often are part of traditional mining.”

Image: AP/Press Association Images Wallonia “did not change a comma”Belgium became a lightning rod for warnings that the EU’s international standing, hit by a migration crisis as well as the Brexit vote, would suffer further if seven years of trade negotiations were to go to waste.After hitting deadlock in talks with Walloon leaders last week, an emotional Freeland dismissed Brussels as “incapable” of achieving an international agreement.Paul Magnette, head of the southern French-speaking Wallonia, had fought for the region’s farming interests and guarantees against international investors forcing governments to change laws against the wishes of the people.Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel held marathon talks in a bid to win the holdout regions over, finally announcing Thursday that the two sides had reached a deal.While Michel has said the fraught talks with Wallonia “did not change a comma” in the deal, Magnette says he walked away with assurances from the federal government of strengthened social and environmental protection.“CETA amended, CETA corrected – that is fairer than the former CETA and offers more guarantees,” Magnette said.The EU was cleared to sign the pact shortly after Wallonia’s parliament voted to approve the deal, along with that of the Brussels-Capital region and the Federation Wallonia-Brussels.Comprehensive Economic and Trade AgreementOfficially known as the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement, the deal removes 99% of customs duties between the two sides, linking the single EU market of 500 million people with the world’s 10th largest economy.Tomorrow’s signing summit will begin at 0930 GMT, with the signing due at 1100 GMT, Tusk’s spokesman Preben Aamann said on Twitter. Source: Donald Tusk/Twitter Last week, the most ambitious ever negotiated by the EU had been hanging by a thread due to protests from Belgium’s Wallonia region and other French-speaking communities over its potential damage to local interests.The trade agreement requires all 28 EU member states to endorse it and in some cases – as in Belgium – regional governments also have to give their approval, meaning Wallonia and the other holdouts were effectively blocking the deal.Trudeau had been due to arrive in Brussels on Thursday to sign the deal but that had to be called off, with leaders including Tusk warning that the debacle was further damaging EU credibility following Britain’s shock vote to leave the bloc.Read: ‘Hullabaloo over EU’s best trade deal in history makes no sense’, says Irish MEPRead: Clinton ‘confident’ new FBI probe will find she did nothing wrong Short URL The Canadian premier wrote back on Twitter: “Great news and I’m looking forward to being there.”In a phone call with Tusk, he hailed the deal as “a good sign in an uncertain world”, an EU source said.Trudeau also tweeted applause for Chrystia Freeland, Canada’s trade minister, thanking her for her “skill and dedication in negotiating a deal to grow Canada’s middle class and strengthen our economy”.

‘I’m still friends with all the Kerry lads – there’s no hard feelings there. A few of them text me afterwards’ Conor Cox played seven times at senior level for Kerry, but makes his championship debut tomorrow for his adopted county – Roscommon. 5 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article May 11th 2019, 7:05 AM By Kevin O’Brien Share22 Tweet Email Saturday 11 May 2019, 1:00 PM LAST JULY, CONOR Cox took his place alongside his father Martin in O’Moore Park for Roscommon’s round 4 qualifier tie against Armagh. Martin hails from the Éire Og club in Roscommon and Conor, his Kerry-born son, has been a regular spectator at their championship games over the years. “He’s a big Rossie fan,” Cox told The42. ”When I’d be free during the summer he’d always be onto me to go to the championship matches and I’ve been to a good few with him.” Players compete for possession during the Armagh v Roscommon 2018 qualifier clash. Source: James Crombie/INPHOIt turned out to be one of the games of the championship. Roscommon edged a high-scoring affair that finished 2-22 to 1-19, which sealed their place in the inaugural Super 8s.On a baking afternoon in Portlaoise, it was a game that demonstrated everything good the inter-county game had to offer.As it turns out, it wasn’t a bad advertisement for the Roscommon footballers either. When the invitation came from new manager Anthony Cunningham over the winter to join the county set-up, the free-flowing nature of their attack was still fresh on Cox’s mind. He had little hesitation in saying, ‘Yes.’“When it came about, I got a call off Anthony and I was absolutely delighted to get it,” he explains. “Over the moon. “I was watching against Armagh last year and it was a great game. I couldn’t get over the skill level and I think it was about 35 degrees the same day.“The way Roscommon moved the ball that day it was very inspiring from a football lover’s point of view. There was no negativity it was just gung-ho and there were some great scores kicked that day and it was just a great game of football to watch really.“Armagh contributed to it hugely and it was a serious game. When Anthony did call, thinking of Roscommon playing that brand of football it was an easy decision really to make.” Conor Cox goes past Niall Morgan during this year’s league. Source: Evan Logan/INPHOCox quickly became a regular in attack under Cunningham, posting 1-25 across the six Division 1 games he played this spring. “Roscommon have no shortage of top class forwards, the likes of Cathal Cregg, Diarmuid Murtagh, Donie Smith, Enda Smith, the list is endless really. I might have been top scorer a few days but there’s certainly top class forwards in Roscommon so they’re not dependent on one person.”Roscommon face Leitrim in Sunday’s Connacht SFC quarter-final in a game and he’s named to start at full-forward. Cox, 25, is set to make his senior inter-county championship debut.It will be a proud moment for his parents to watch their son don the primrose and blue. Cox’s father met his mother Anne, a native of Kerry, in New York after both had emigrated in the 1980s. “Dad would have played with Eire Og. They would have been a relatively new club founded when he was growing up.“When the recession hit then he had to go to America so he met my mom over there then. Football took a back-step when you’re over in New York. “Mom’s originally from Moyvane so she would have gone out to New York too during the recession. She’s mad into her football too.“She was thrilled when Anthony called to give me the opportunity to train with Roscommon first. The way things moved along so quickly she’s delighted going up and down to the games.” He grew up in Kerry, showing initial promise with the local Listowel Emmets club. Cox represented the Kingdom the whole way through the underage ranks and the signposts indicated that he was set for a breakthrough at senior level. But it never transpired. He didn’t start a game with Kerry minors – making just one substitute appearance – but was the first-choice full-forward for two years with the Kingdom U21s. Cox celebrates a score against Cork in the Munster U21 quarter-final of 2013. Source: Cathal Noonan/INPHOHe scored 1-21 across his four U21 appearances in 2012 and 2013, playing alongside several future seniors like Mark Griffin, Stephen O’Brien, Paul Murphy, Tadhg Morley and Jack Sherwood.It was at university level where Cox really shone. He became a key figure in the UCC team that contended for Sigerson Cups earlier this decade under the guidance of Billy Morgan.Cox played in three finals, winning the competition in 2014. The UCC full-forward line that year had a terrifying look to it: Paul Geaney, Cox, Michael Quinlivan.Geaney and Quinlivan would go on to win All-Stars but it was Cox who top-scored with six points in the win over UUJ.“I don’t know about standing out,” he says, “there were so many top quality players in that team. It’s funny, myself and Niall Daly we always talk about it. That was my first year at Sigerson and it was his last year so I would have got to know him that year.“I played with other players, Conor Sweeney, Peter Acheson, Michael Quinlivan, Paul Geaney – we had top class players down there.“Funnily enough we were actually written off big time in that final. We were playing UUJ in Queen’s and I don’t think anybody gave us a chance.“But we were quietly confident ourselves, I suppose Billy Morgan…if he’s over a team, every team has a chance to matter who they’re playing.”The Ulster side were hot-favourites heading into the decider, boasting a team that included future stars Rory Beggan, Chrissy McKaigue, Colin Walshe, Killian Clarke, Mattie Donnelly, Kieran Hughes, Ronan O’Neill, Jamie Clarke and Connor McAlliskey.But UCC edged through a tight finale by 0-10 to 0-9 after Cork man Conor Dorman popped up with an injury-time winner.In his last year at Sigerson level in 2015, Cox scored three points in the extra-time final loss to DCU. Following the game, Billy Morgan indicated his surprise that the young forward hadn’t been given a proper chance with Kerry seniors under Eamonn Fitzmaurice. “I think he is an out-and-out class player,” said Morgan. “I expected him to be on the Kerry (championship) panel last year. It beats me why he wasn’t.“I am sure after today, like he was outstanding for us. He has been outstanding for us all this season and they’ll have to take note.”Cox is full of praise for the influence Cork legend Morgan had on his career.“The thing about Billy is he lets the players drive it and he goes in at the back of it too. He’s very positive too and he’d have had a big influence on my career.“It’s funny, I was actually chatting to him a few weeks ago and he was telling me he’s still following my progress and all that. Billy’s great, he’s a very nice fella.” Billy Morgan, Cox and David Culhane celebrate UCC’s Sigerson Cup win in 2014. Source: Presseye/Russell Pritchard/INPHOStanding at 6ft, Cox is a powerful inside forward and accurate shooter. He won three All-Ireland junior titles with Kerry (2012, ’15 and ’17) and scored 1-18 across the finals against Mayo (twice) and Meath. In the 2017 decider against the Royals, the Kerry full-forward line consisted of Cox, Spillane and Tomás Ó Sé. The latter pair are currently part of Peter Keane’s senior panel. The senior appearances were few and far between for Cox. He played in seven Allianz Football League games over a span of four years (two in 2013, three in 2014 and two in 2016).He started the Division 1 round 2 win over Derry in 2014, posting seven points. Cox followed up that performance with a four-point haul against Mayo a week later, but instead of propelling him up the pecking order, it would be his last appearance for two years.He spent that summer in the States, while Kerry went on to win a shock All-Ireland title in September.Cox’s final game for the Kingdom came against Roscommon, incidentally, in the league three years ago, where he scored a point. Despite starting just three times, he contributed 0-13 in his senior career in the green and gold.With opportunities difficult to come by under Fitzmaurice, did Cox ever question his ability to make it as an inter-county footballer? “The thing about it really is that in Kerry it’s very competitive down there and that’s just with club football too,” he reflects.“The thing I like most about football is the competitiveness of it. I’ll be representing Feale Rangers in the county championship and every game you play with them is competitive.“I played a few senior games (with Kerry) alright. I’d know all the lads, I’d be friendly with them. I suppose with what has happened, there’s no hard feelings or anything. I’m still friends with them and all that.“I played underage with Kerry and a few league games too but I’m just enjoying the present now at the minute and looking forward to the future other than looking back at it. Cox takes on Ger Cafferkey during a Division 1 clash against Mayo in 2014. Source: James Crombie/INPHO“I’m really enjoying football at the minute up here and I’m looking forward to this year and a few years of it left hopefully.”Before Cox could switch allegiances to Roscommon, a messy transfer process took place. He admits it would have run a lot smoother had it not been for a “lack of research” on his own part. He initially transferred from Listowel to Éire Óg but the ‘Seanie Johnston rule’ meant that for him to be elgibile to play for Roscommon he’d need to have played a championship game with his new club first. With the local championship not beginning until August, that would have ruled him out for virtually the entire campaign.St Judes also sounded him out over a potential move to Dublin, but Cox would eventually discover that the parentage rule meant he was already qualified to play for Roscommon.“I initially had got a transfer to Éire Óg but it was just unfortunate their club championship fell in August time which was probably a bit late in the year for Anthony and the management if they wanted to have a right look at me,” he said.“I was speaking to the St Judes manager and he was very understanding of the situation because I was based in Dublin. But again, it was probably down to my own lack of research and lack of knowledge on the whole transfer thing.“But it’s funny enough the way it happened, because if I was asked at the start of the year if I’d be happy to stay with Listowel Emmets I definitely would. I’m really enjoying football down there too at the minute. “So it just made a bit more sense to go back down to Listowel,” he continued. “From my own point of view I probably didn’t do enough research into the whole transfer saga.“I was told after that if I stayed with Listowel I could have played with Roscommon under the parent rule anyway. Yerra, there’s no one to blame really for it. It is what it is.” Cox was Roscommon’s top scorer during the league. Source: Evan Logan/INPHORoscommon were relegated to Division 2 in the spring but there were plenty of positives for Cunningham to glean in his first year in charge.Cox hit four points in the defeat to his native county on 24 March and received some messages of support from his old team-mates following the game.“The result was disappointing, that was the big thing about the day. I’d still be friends with all the Kerry lads there’s no hard feelings there or anything and actually a few of them texted me afterwards to wish me the best of luck – Peter Crowley and Paul Geaney,“I’d have known them through UCC very well too. I’d be friends with them and it was just another game really but the result was disappointing from the Roscommon side of things.”He’s enjoying working under Cunningham, who brought both the Galway hurlers and Garrycastle footballers to All-Ireland finals in the past.“Anthony’s top class in fairness to him. He’s very knowledgeable. Not only with the football but with the hurling too. He’s very tactically aware and he’s driven. You can sense it by him, I’d say he’s not a good loser.“He wants to make sure his teams are in the best shape going into the games both physically and mentally. I couldn’t say enough good things about him really to be honest, I’ve been very, very impressed by him. He’s top class.” Roscommon boss Anthony Cunningham. Source: Bryan Keane/INPHORoscommon face a potential showdown with league champions Mayo in the last four of the province. After falling flat in the Super 8s last year, Roscommon are hoping to take another step forward this summer. For Cox, entering his rookie championship campaign as a starter, his goal is simple.“For myself personally, I haven’t made a championship appearance yet so the big thing for me now is to keep the head down over the next few weeks and continue working on the parts of my game that I need to work on and hopefully I make a championship panel during the year and hopefully Roscommon are successful, that’s the main thing really.“It’s grand when you see a few scores to your name but I’ll work hard for the team and if the opportunities come I want to take them.” Subscribe to our new podcast, The42 Rugby Weekly, here: Short URL Subscribe https://the42.ie/4626464 49,358 Views
