Default nz working holiday advice

I arrived in NZ in august 2013 on a years working holiday vis, I then had to cut my trip short due to a family emergency and return home in november2013, I am from northern ireland and entered on a irish passport, I now would like to return and finish my working holiday, is this possible? If not I am able to get a british passport and apply for a working holiday visa on that passport, any help or advice would be greatly appreciated as I am STRESSING OUT!! Thanks so much for any help

unfortunately its a one of application so you will not be able to apply,even on the different passport and if you do they may see that in a negative light. How old are you? there has been talk of using BUNAC to help people over. sorry do not know the ins and outs you would have to look in to it.

You can apply for an extension on a 12mth visa or apply for a 23mth one initially but I believe if you apply for the 23mth you will require a medical. not sure on the extension visa though. but out of those 23mth you are only allowed to work 12mths

Looks like those from Ireland can only get a 12mth WHV. Different rules for different countries.
I can't imagine that it would be allowable to reapply for one using a different passport...
