Insurance in Ireland

Postby Terence » Sat Aug 20, 2011 3:56 pm

I'll be demonstrating green woodworking in Ireland in a couple of weeks and am wondering if APLT & GW membership gives me public liability cover for Ireland as well as the UK? I've e-mailed the insurance@bodgers.org.uk address and asked for a certificate to be forwarded but haven't got a response and need to find out soon so I can get other cover in Ireland if required.

Thought someone here might know. Thanks.

Terence,

Have you done your demonstration? How did you get on with insurance? I am currently searching for insurance here in Ireland from a broker but the guy I am in contact with is very slow and does not know about this industry. So, looking through the ask and answer I found a discussion thread called Living in a sue-age society. I am not sure how to quote the link here. Anyhow, it mentions NFU and Ian W. Wallace. Have you tried them? The Wallace website mentions under Optional Cover, persons normally resident in the UK but temporarily working overseas.

I am only reading through this website now.

These guys do craft worker insurance that covers UK and Ireland: http://www.padraicsmith.ie/craft-workers-insurance.asp. Was looking for a way of avoiding the 170euro premium considering it was for a one off demo but the only option was a years cover. Its a crafts council of ireland scheme so you have to be registered with CCOI

How did ye get on with this? I'm facing the same problem and have just started looking into it. So far it seems ATW members' insurance doesn't cover Ireland anyway.

Eamonn,
As per Terence's message, you have to register with the Crafts Council of Ireland (CCoI) then go to Padraic Smith and they insure you as a craftsman. They have 5 levels of insurance.
Regards

Have you contacted the insurance person to confirm this?
