HUGE ACCOLADE: Brian and Mairead de Staic of Brian de Staic Jewellery, who have a business on High Street, have been named ‘Jewellery Store of the Year’.

A local Killarney business woman and her husband have won an enormous accolade – as their businesses were named ‘Jewellery Store of the Year’.

Brian de Staic Jewellery, which has three stores, with one based in High Street, and two in Dingle, won ‘The Irish Independent Jewellery Store of the Year Award 2019’.

The event, which is in its second year, welcomed finalists and guests from all over the country to The Crowne Plaza, Dublin - Blanchardstown, on Wednesday, August 14 in a celebration of the Irish retail industry.

The awards acknowledged the contributions of the country’s independent retails to the overall economy as well as the wide range of diversity that is present in this sector. They also recognised the business acumen and entrepreneurial spirit of individuals that own smaller chains, whose work is often overshadowed in the bigger landscape.

The awards were hosted by the best-selling author and presenter, Andrea Hayes. She welcomed on stage the finalists of each sector whose ability and commitment to serving the Irish communities have crowed them winners.

The competition was very competitive but Brian and Máiréad de Staic, who export their products to 68 countries worldwide, say they are humbled and honoured to receive the accolade.
“This award is a great recognition of our contribution to the jewellery business for nearly 40 years,” Mairead said.
“We’d like to thank our tremendous team and all our local, national and International customers.”

She explained that the event also provided an excellent platform for networking and marketing as some of the most successful retailers and brands were present to celebrate the achievements of the retail sector.

As well as celebrating the Irish independent retailers, the awards also offered a platform to raise money for official charity partner Make-A-Wish Ireland that grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to give hope, strength and joy.

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.
