If you are outside the State for longer than 6 weeks after you submit your application, you must notify ISD by letter or email to explain why.

"I am directed by the Minister for Justice to refer to your application for naturalisation.
Your application is being processed with a view to establish whether you meet the statutory conditions for the granting of naturalisation and will be submitted to the Minister for decision as expeditiously as as possible as soon as our enquiries are complete and all required documentation has been compiled.
In general it takes 12 months for a straightforward application to be processed from the date it is received to the date a decision is made. However, the nature of the naturalisation process is such that for a broad(genera text continues)...
If further documentation and/or clarification of any matter related to your application is required from you, we will write to you requesting it. Otherwise, you will receive a letter in due course informing you of the Minister's decision on your application."
Hi littlerr, thanks for your respond. Would the letter I received be the second letter? Does anyone know approximately how long now days applications take (considering Covid and people who applied due to Brexit)?littlerr wrote: ↑Thu Mar 18, 2021 3:50 pmIt shouldn't be negatively impacted but you are obliged to inform INIS about your intended absence. Leaving How INIS will interpret that is a different story. They may delay your application for a certain period of time, or they may do nothing at all. Either way, you'd be better having a good reason when you tell them that.

That makes sense. Should I send an email to this address "email@example.com"?littlerr wrote: ↑Thu Mar 18, 2021 5:28 pmPreviously the second stage letter would clearly say that your application has now been moved to second stage, but based on a few people’s feedback recently, it is no longer always the case any more. The easiest way to check would be to simply drop them an email and ask what stage you are in.
Currently a straightforward application takes 12 months to process, although I suspect that number is going to increase as the lockdown continues...
Thanks @littlerr. Makes sense. I was only intrigued by Dub291's letter that he received after several months coz I got my acknowledgement with exact same wording along with my Passport and Receiptlittlerr wrote: ↑Thu Mar 18, 2021 5:28 pmPreviously the second stage letter would clearly say that your application has now been moved to second stage, but based on a few people’s feedback recently, it is no longer always the case any more.

Hi littlerr could you answer this question please, If a person leaves for 5 and half weeks, comes back to Ireland then after 2 days leaves the Ireland again and comes back after 5 and half weeks, would that be "considered longer than 6 weeks". Would that be ok to do ? I applied for citizenship, as an eu citizen Oct 2020.
