Listener email: 'I’m in my thirties and have lived in Dublin for six years, working in a great but very stressful accountancy job. When Covid hit, I moved back home to the northwest to work remotely for a while, and almost four months later I’m still here.  I’ve really started to reevaulate things while I’ve been here. I’ve been asking myself why I struggled so hard for so long in Dublin. The quality of life is not great with the daily commute, I’ve never been able to get a house because of the expense. I’m starting to see that life might be much easier if I moved out of the city I’m wondering how much I’d miss my social life in Dublin, or if that would really affect me. I’m also not sure if my employer is going to let me work remotely long term, so it’s possible that the move would mean a change of job too.  Have any of your listeners moved away from the city and how did they find it? I’m looking for advice' Andrea Gilligan hears from listeners
