Retention renewal?

Post by lucidj » Thu May 20, 2021 1:09 pm

Hello all. I currently have a stamp 4 valid until 2023 based on my marriage to an Irish citizen. We stopped living together so I applied for a retention of my status and was granted a 12 month extension of my stamp 4. My question is: Do I need to renew/register this new visa now or wait until the current one is about to expire? I am leaving the country in two weeks so I am afraid my current visa is not valid anymore. The letter i got granting me retention doesn't specify that.
