Killarney Advertiser Team of the Year full of eastern promise

Published

on

2019 was a historic year for the East Kerry senior footballers so it should come as no surprise that they dominate the Killarney Advertiser Sport Team of the Year with 10 players in total.

In addition to those county champions from Spa, Glenflesk, Fossa, Gneeveguilla and Firies, stars from neighbouring clubs Dr Crokes, Killarney Legion and Kilcummin also made the cut.

All senior players from the Killarney/East Kerry region who lined out in the past 12 months were eligible for selection and performances in all competitions at both club and intercounty level were taken into consideration.

For the second year in a row, Kerry, Fossa and East Kerry star David Clifford has been named Player of the Year while Dr Crokes’ versatile midfielder/forward Mark O’Shea has been chosen as Young Player of the Year.

IMPRESSIVE

Veteran goalkeeper James Devane gets the nod between the posts after a string of impressive performances in the County Championship and his divisional teammates Jack Sherwood and Niall Donohue make the team at full and corner back respectively. The Firies clubmen are joined in the full back line by Cian Gammell of Legion who played a starring role as his club secured their first O’Donoghue Cup title since 1976.

At half back, Kilcummin’s Seán O’Leary is selected for the second year in a row with the athletic pairing of Dan O’Donoghue and Pa Warren rounding off the defence.

Young Player of the Year O’Shea also lined out at full forward for the Crokes but in this team he has been picked at midfield where he slots in alongside Liam Kearney of Spa.

The forward division is stacked with talent. James O’Donoghue was excellent for Legion all year so he gets the No. 10 jersey and for the second year in a row, Fossa’s Paudie Clifford is selected at centre forward. Dynamic Spa player Evan Cronin, who kicked four points from play in the county final against Dr Crokes, fills the other half forward spot at No. 12.

Tony Brosnan, who was terrific for Dr Crokes despite it being a disappointing year overall for the club, lines out in the corner next to Player of the Year David Clifford, while Clifford’s East Kerry colleague Darragh Roche is named in the other corner.

All told, five players – Sherwood, O’Leary, the Clifford brothers and Brosnan – have retained their places in the all-star line-up.

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.
