Application Based On: Irish Associations
Applied On: 21 Aug 2018 (send by registered mail)
Application received On: 22 Aug 2018
Acknowledgement : 30 Aug 2018 - received a letter dated 24 Aug, asking for additional proofs of residency (I have 3.5 and they asked for 5 years). Will reply to them to ask to waive this condition based on the Section 16. Will see what happens...
Second Letter: TBC
Awaiting On Approval: TBC
Date of Ceremony: TBC
Letters requesting additional proofs of residence etc etc etc received around 10th March 2020.

I replied for an extension and they accepted it - I sent all I had in August when they were still open.

They reply with short 'we acknowledge the receipt of documents' and that's it...

My interpretation is - they haven't rejected my application, I didn't have 5 years initially but now have, so it is lying around somewhere over there. I give them till March and then will think.

In the meantime my wife got it on the 2nd March Ceremony (applied in Aug 2018 but had over 5 years of residence).

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:

Based on 13 years marriage and nearly 25 years residency (26/07) NI
Applied on: 17/05/18
Acknowledgement: 21/05/18
Second Stage Letter: 11/07/19
Approval: 20/11/19

Based on 14 years marriage and 26 years resident
Applied on: 17/05/18
Acknowledgement: 21/05/18
Second Stage Letter: 11/07/19
Approval: 20/11/19
Ceremony date: waiting

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.

Email from citizenship: 20/01/21 Asking me to complete a statutory declaration instead of award ceremony; caveat had to be in front of a solicitor in the Rep (I'm in NI). Crossed border on the 2nd Feb and saw a solicitor, then the border closed apart from essential within a couple of days.
Received my citizenship certificate today 17/02/21
