The letter we had explained Directive 2004/38/EC and why my wife did not need visa, all stamped and signed by Maltese consul. Still immigration people looked perplexed.

Maybe because if person was away for prolonged period of time 1-2 years he/she should reapply...I think I read somewhere..So this way they kind of know...

Directive 2004/38/EC requires that you have medical or health insurance only if you are not working or self-employed;

Just go to your local immigration office in the police station with the original letter that you recieved last year
Zen, people should apply in Burgh Quay if they live in Dublin.
For anyone outside Dublin rules may differ.
