Default applying for 2nd year IEC visa!(help/advice)

hi all, I am an irish citizen living and working in Canada for the last twelve months. I am about to apply for my second year IEC visa. I have read that three year habitual residency for three years in Ireland prior to application. (aka i must of spent/lived for three years in ireland before going to Canada). I am short 6 months as i lived in England for some of this time. Any advice? has anyone had a similar situation? Are they very strict on Habitual residency? Thanks!!!

There are tons of people in the same boat, who are applying anyway - people have said that this rule has been in effect for some time now and they have granted people visas who haven't had full habitual residency.. Just apply and see what happens..
