52 groups across the Killarney area and surrounds received a total of €121,000 in the latest round of the Community Support Fund.
This week, Kerry County Council announced details of the allocation of €750,000 in funding support for community groups and projects across the county under the Community Support Fund for 2020.
A total of 287 groups and projects received grant aid worth €485,000 this year while a proportion of the fund, totalling €265,000, is being retained to leverage funding from other funding streams for strategic projects at Municipal District level.
The fund, which is in its sixth year, has now supported 1,500 projects since 2015 to the value of €4.5m since its establishment.
Councillors in the four Municipal Districts met last week to decide on the allocations and unanimously welcomed the provision of support to the recipients. Councillors congratulated all the community groups and acknowledged the tremendous voluntary work that they do.
“The Community Support Fund has targeted funding towards a very wide range of community-based projects and has provided support to community councils, chamber alliances, tidy towns groups and other organisations in a very progressive and structured way,” Cathaoirleach of Kerry County Council, Cllr Niall Kelleher, said. “The retention of part of the fund to help to leverage funding from other sources and to co-fund projects with other funding streams has proven to be an enormous success in recent years and will be successful again, I hope, in 2020.”

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.
