Received a letter dated 18 June asking me for Subject Access Form (DAT1) from PSNI, applied for it the day after I received letter (PSNI no longer charge) I received my Criminal Record Check from PSNI yesterday (26 July) and I'm sending it to Tipperary today.
Received a letter dated 09/06/19, almost a year after my last correspondence, asking for 2 more forms of ID/address for 2015 that weren't uni letters...sent off my bank records and a doctor's note this week, tracked and signed and arrived on the 18/06.
Approval letter arrived Wednesday 20/11/2019...just have to send money off and get a ceremony date, chance I will get 9th Dec but idk yet:

Second Stage Letter: 11/07/19
Approval: 20/11/19

I thought I would just give a wee update, I got my approval late last year but I had to spend my saved €950 on a family member who was in need and figured I would get Christmas out the way and then save up in the new year, unfortunately with Covid I lost my job and it's taken me a whole lot longer to raise the money than I ever thought it would. Good news tho, I've sent in my bank draft and photos last week so just waiting on virtual ceremony/in person ceremony date.
