History, services & Inishowen
The Furey family has been providing property and insurance services to the Inishowen Peninsula, Donegal and throughout Ireland since 1982. The business was founded by Sean Furey in 1982 and was the first of its kind in Inishowen -offering various financial services to the community. Two companies are run side by side. Sean Furey Insurances Limited is regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland as a general insurance broker. They offer all types of general insurance and provide a bespoke service to both personal and business customers large and small. They have found a niche market in serving customers who like to do business with a trusted local source instead of an impersonal website. The offices can be contacted by calling in, by phone or by email. Their friendly advisors are all highly experienced, qualified and are always happy to help. All at Sean Furey Insurances Limited have a commitment to education and continuous professional development.
The business has two offices open to the public. Our Carndonagh office is managed by Colm Furey who is also an owner of the business. He has 19 years experience and holds an honours bachelor degree, a post graduate diploma in communication and is a certified insurance practitioner (CIP). This office has been serving the community of North Inishowen since 1990.
Our Buncrana office is managed by Dara Furey along with colleagues Tanya Lyons & Catherine McDermott. Tanya is a certified insurance practitioner (CIP) and has 19 years professional experience. Catherine handles administration and has 5 years experience. This office has been serving the community of Inishowen since 1982.
Sean Furey Auctioneers is Inishowen’s premier estate agent and is licensed and run by Dara Furey who has 23 years experience in the industry starting in 1997. He provides an expert, professional and versatile service which includes selling, buying, advising and valuation in the county of Donegal. The service is experience and qualification based – Dara holds two degrees as well as various auctioneering and valuation certificates and diplomas.
Dara is an elected member of the Ulster council of the Institute of Professional Auctioneers and Valuers (IPAV) and advises estate agents and auctioneers on various issues throughout Donegal, Ulster and Ireland. This appointment is held by only two auctioneers/estate agents in Ulster. He is also a member of the European Association of Real Estate Professions (CEPI). As a Commissioner for Oaths, which is an appointment by the Supreme Court of Ireland, Dara is authorised to administer oaths for various purposes.
With the continuous professionalisation of both the insurance and property industries, having the qualification and experience to do the jobs has become extremely important. Customers should always ask to see qualifications before employing someone to provide a service.
As they approach their 40th anniversary in 2022, the Furey family is very grateful to the people of Inishowen, Donegal, Derry and throughout Ireland for the support they have received over the years. They look forward to continuing to serve their existing customers and to welcoming new clients from current and future generations.
