Organisers of this year's Fleadh Cheoil Chiarraí have had to come up with an alternative way to celebrate music, song and dance - by instead bringing it to life online.

Normally it's the biggest weekend for Kerry CCÉ, which was due to be held this year in Milltown - however, it's now going to be just as great this weekend - with a virtual Fleadh via Facebook and YouTube.

"Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 outbreak it was one of the major festivals in Kerry to be cancelled," John Stack told the Killarney Advertiser.

"Not to be defeated Kerry CCÉ has decided to host their own Kerry CCÉ Virtual Kerry Fleadh. It has been a lot of work putting our programme together because of the restrictions, but with some proper planning we have put together a comprehensive programme for the weekend."

In total they will be posting over 90 videos from last year's winners from County, Munster and National level as well as special guests.

"These videos will be uploaded during Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On Friday evening we will also have an online family quiz with prizes for the winners. On Saturday we start uploading from 11am to 5pm and after a little sos our special guests slot will kick off at 7pm."

Included will be Mike Jack Cronin, Fossa CCÉ, Realtaí naTodhchaí a group of young musicians from the following branches Grace Heffernan and Daibhín Laide Ballydonoghue/Lisselton, Colleen Angland Glenflesk, Conor Brennan and Sarah Murphy Lixnaw and Michael Healy Kilcummin comes together online to be part of this fantastic occasion.

"We finish off Saturday night with a special piece from Sharon Shannon for the weekend as she was the headline act for this year's Fleadh Cheoil."

Proceedings will kick off on Sunday from 11am to 5pm.
"We hope you can join us on Facebook" fleadhcheoil.chiarrai and on YouTube: Kerry CCÉ.

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.
