MUSIC: Paul Sexton, Ciarán Kelleher and Tom O'Connor belting out the tunes at Faha Rambling House last year.

 

Rambling Houses, like many other popular social events, have taken a hit this year. Rambling Houses take their inspiration from the open-door tradition in rural Ireland and bring musicians, singers, dancers, storytellers and entertainers of all kinds together for a night of "craic agus brack".

 

Many will miss these gatherings, so Milltown-Listry Comhaltas have been inviting local musicians to record their performances and these will go live tonight (Saturday) as a 'Virtual Rambling House'. All are invited to join at 8pm as they showcase the fabulous talent in the area. You can find the link through the Milltown-Listry Facebook page.

"We did not want the event side-lined and we know how much people enjoy this event, so we felt it was important to prevail despite the restrictions," Chairman Turlough O'Brien said.

The Milltown-Listry Branch appeal to all to reach out to people who mightn't be able to access the event online.

"If you know someone who'd enjoy this but can't use the necessary devices, please try to provide for them," added Branch PRO, Chris Horan. "The event will be on YouTube, so if you can't watch, you can catch up anytime. Don't let the 2020 restrictions stop you from having a great night of local traditional talent - tune in at 8pm and join in the fun."

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.
