Dr Crokes GAA Club members turned out in force this week to bid a final farewell to former star player and vice-president Liam Murphy, who passed away last Friday.

Liam, of Marian Terrace and late of St Anne's Road, Killarney, passed away peacefully in Heather Lee Nursing Home in Killarney.

The famed black and amber flag was draped over Liam's coffin following the removal from O'Shea's Funeral Home on Monday evening and again after the Funeral Mass in St Mary's Cathedral on Tuesday morning. Past and present Dr Croke’s players and officers provided guards of honour on both occasions.
During a prominent playing career Liam won seven East Kerry Senior Football Championship medals (O’Donoghue Cup), captaining Dr Crokes to a 2-04 to 1-02 victory over local rivals Legion in the 1960 final.

His son Connie went on to match Liam's record, also winning seven O'Donoghue Cups between 1986 and 2000. Liam was a proud father watching Connie enjoy an illustrious playing career with Kerry from 1987 to 1995, winning an All-Star award in 1989 and captaining the county in 1992, the same year his Man of the Match performance helped Dr Crokes clinch their first All-Ireland Club title.

Liam is survived by his wife Sheila, daughters Mary, Sheila and Kate, sons Jerry and Connie, sons-in-law Kieran, Pat and Eoghan, daughters-in-law Catherine and Yvonne, grandchildren David, Alison, Juliette, Steven, Trish, Adam, Laura, Mark, Lia and Tara, and extended family.

He was laid to rest in the New Cemetery, Killarney.

What kind of insurance does a building contractor need?

Commercial vehicles and machinery

First and foremost, if a building contractor has commercial vehicles then road risk cover is a requirement by law. As with all other motor insurance products, the cover options would be comprehensive, third party fire and theft, or third party only. Commercial fleet polices can cover many vehicles under one policy.
The value of the vehicle is important to review each year, as are the drivers.
Commercial vehicle policies usually give “open driving 25 to 70-years-old” but sometimes naming the drivers who will use the vehicle is a better option and can save you money.
You may need road risk and associated covers for driving plant and machinery such as teleporters, tractors and the like.

Employers, Public and Products Liability Insurance

Employers Liability Insurance covers your legal liability in the event that you are negligent and required to pay compensation for bodily injuries to an employee in the course of their employment. Employee numbers and annual wages will need to be disclosed accurately and annually.
Public Liability Insurance covers your legal liability in the event that you are negligent and required to pay compensation for bodily injuries or damage to third party property in the course of your business activities.
Your annual turnover will need to be disclosed and reviewed annually. Many main contractors and State bodies may require the tradesperson to have a minimum of €6.5 million limit of indemnity.
Products Liability Insurance covers your legal liability for injuries and property damage in connection with goods sold or supplied.

Other covers needed may include “Tools in Transit” cover which can be arranged in conjunction with your commercial vehicle policy and “Engineering Inspection Cover” may be required on plant and machinery. A “Contract Works Policy” protects the building works in progress against fire. Some insurers can include “Personal Accident” cover on a combined liability policy.

You should seek out the expert advice of a professional insurance broker to review your insurance needs. At Healy Insurances, we can review your business requirements, offer expert advice and save you money on your premiums.
