The department is very efficient, when ever I make enquiries, they reply in under 24 hrs, so I guess they will shed light on things for you.
Alternatively you can go to local Garda, who will have an authority to extend your IRP so as to enable you to have documents to show employer.
However if a person is a family member of an EU national, residing in accordance with EU law in the state, they have automatic rights, even without GNIB, and not having an IRP should not undermine citizenship.
