    The IRP card is not a travel document - how are you planning to travel without a passport?

    Do they not give you the old passport back?

    Usually most countries give you the old passport back, especially if you have visas etc on them that are still valid. Ask them when you apply or even before.

    Make a copy of your old passport and visas also.

    You will be able to return to Ireland with your new passport and IRP card

    The point is that even on my old passport i have only 1 stamp that expires 2 years ago and they said they dont need to put a new one anymore so the only stamp i have is expiry 2 years ago.

    This new system is very confusing
