I don't know what the breakdown of the expenses are but keep in mind that Mickey Ring is a Minister and therefore has a ministerial car, whereas Michelle has to use her own transport.
Using basic math and low numbers, if Michelle only takes one trip to Dublin per week her 'fuel only' costs should be somewhere around about the 2K mark.
Dublin - Ballina = 153miles / 246kms
Depreciation on her own vehicle, food, accomodation, etc. all add up - though personally as she's from Ballina I think she should take the train.
