So annoyed today inis have sent me a letter wanting 2 proofs of address for my wife and I which were received already!!please advise me I have nothing else to give them
Did you send them your three different proof of address of each year? If you already sent them you can resend the same proof of address with different DATES on them.
Sent in the proofs for each year aswell as the 3 proofs for 3 months prior to application!then passports returned and they looked for 3 proofs again for 3 months prior plus a letter from employer which they received already so in all I sent back 5 different proofs and still want more!!it's frustrating 😏😏
They are asking for almost everyone once they receive individual application. I know its annoying to keep asking the same doc which they have them already. You better get a fresh letter from your work and produce three different POA in fresh dates and write a letter to explain that you have send these documents already. When i applied they were looking for only GNIB copy again so i wrote a letter along a copy of Gnib.
Idk if this is their new policy or people are working there not paying enough attention when they go through all the documents .

Application Based On: NonEU (Stamp 1 + Stamp 4 - over 5 years in Ireland)
Applied On: 01/04/2019
Application received On: 02/04/2019
Acknowledgement : 08/05/2019 Received passport back and receipt of payment + letter of acknowledgement
Second Letter: 14/06/2019
Approval: Pending
Date of Ceremony: Pending

I had a business trip in May so I called and email them a few times to see about getting my passport back. Also, had to request an extension for getting documents because they only give you 28 days and I needed longer than that for the police clearance, and to get my old landlord to retroactively register my tenancy (they wanted RTB letters for all tenancies)

Maybe I was just lucky, but if you need your passport back quickly, calling and politely explaining why may help.

Also I don't know if it matters but I tried to ensure my application (about 250 pages) was very neatly organized with different folders, labels, tabs, etc. and explanations of anything unusual.
