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.

UPDATE
Application Based On: NonEU (Stamp 1 + Stamp 4) 5 years residency
Applied On: 25/02/2019
Application received On: 26/02/2019

05/03/19 : Realized I got a Gard to witness my statutory declaration. So I went to a solicitor for another one, using my national South African ID as proof of identity.

Sent: 06/03/2019
Received: 07/03/2019[/highlight]

Acknowledgement received: 12/03/19 dated 08/03/19 from Team 2 with original documents and receipt, and letter requesting the following:
1) I stupidly answered yes to Q5.6 and they request " dates and details for all absences over six weeks from 2014 to 25/02/2019."

2) "Please complete enclosed statutory form as previous form was incorrectly completed and must be identified by an up to date passport." I have sent one signed by a solicitor who identified me using my I.D as my passport was with DJE. I then sent a third one with a solicitor witnessing it.

3) Bank statements for 3 months of 2014 and 2019. (This was in bold). lol
