You can go through the immigration control without GNIB card - that’s not a problem. I’ve done it five times.
My concern is that with the abolishment of re-entry visas, some airlines may not admit a person on a plane if they don’t have a GNIB card or re-entry visa. In my case I was travelling by Aer Lingus primarily without check-in luggage, so they never got the chance to check whether I have a GNIB/re-entry. In the case of Ryanair, or essentially any airline if you are going to check in your luggage, this might be a problem, because an approval letter means nothing to them, and I’m not sure if the stamp on your passport alone will allow you to travel.
Yes true that, it happened to me immigration office literally will look at your name on your passport and look it up on their computer "System", everything is stored there and no need to show up any letter or cards.
As well as, Aerlingus is decent
, they wont check even with check in luggage (Maybe I was lucky but they never ask) and with letter you can go through I believe. Ryanair will ask for the card but I believe you can still argue about it
*If you are from a visa required country, and have a valid IRP card or GNIB card, you will no longer require a re-entry visa to leave and return to Ireland on or after 13 May 2019. You will be able to show your passport and IRP or GNIB card to prove to airlines and immigration officials that you have a right to travel to Ireland. You will be exempt from the requirement to hold a visa.*
