No Wonder Seanie Johnston Hasn't Moved To Straffan

No Wonder Seanie Johnston Hasn't Moved To Straffan
By Donny Mahoney Updated

Have you explored the logistics behind Seanie Johnston's move to Straffan? They're fairly mental. First of all, what a shite commute, having to come around Dublin to get to the N3 in order to get up at Breffni College in Cavan town. That means getting up at 5.30am, I'd reckon and then a hellish drive home in order to catch evening training. Wouldn't do it myself.

Some guy on boards.ie did the math on it:

He's working in Cavan town as a teacher in Cavan College. Not on flexitime so would have to be in Cavan at 9am.
From Straffan that's a 1h40min drive via Edgeworthstown costing approx 20euro incl the motorway toll each way.
So return you're looking at a daily commute of 3h20min driving and 40euro according to viamichelin.
And you'd be looking at getting up at 6.30am every day in order to be out the door in time to make it to Cavan at 9am and not back till about 6 in the evening.
A midweek training for the Gaels after school would mean him not getting back to Kildare till about midnight and have to get up again the next morning for school.

Adding it up thats 16h 40min in total of commuting over a 5 day week costing 200euro weekly in petrol alone not counting the depreciation or wear and tear that 1300km PER WEEK would cost you.

Then check out the apartments on offer in Straffan. It's grand, I guess, if you want to live on a golf course with divorced pensioners. It's pretty serious rent on teacher's salary in order to live in ... Straffan. A transfer to Fermanagh would have been much less hassle.
