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.
Second stage: 24/6/2019
