Emails on 21/6/2019 - I immediately noticed an error in processing, so I emailed INIS directly, and emailed a TD, who emailed INIS and the Minister. I also replied by email to the FOI team who also emailed INIS.
Then... after over a year of no progress, I got an email from INIS "the application has now been initially assessed and has proceeded to the second stage of processing". Interestingly, the email from INIS says the letter was issued on 20/1, or one day before they sent the FOI response.

Received a letter dated today 24/07/19 requesting another proof of residency for the last three months prior to application, I'll be gathering that up and posting tomorrow. The last request for more information was for 2015, three years prior to my application which is based on marriage to an Irish citizen; and this is for 3 months directly before my submission, feels like they're making an effort to confirm residency between my husband and myself, here's hoping anyway
