I have a similar problem in Offaly, the 7 year family residence condition, providing that application can be made to Council for permission for another who can show similar needs to reside there. Did you have any luck getting your waiver?
There is this question over whether such conditions are discriminatory, although as far as I know nothing has been definitely decided, Ireland is defending its policies itself in EU circles. Although the omission of such conditions from plans and permission in recent years seems to me to be an admission that they were not all that kosher.
Any views, info, advice would be gratefully received.
such conditions are a matter of course for most 'one offs' that i know of... the sustainable rural housing guidelines call for them specifically in areas under pressure from urban generated rural housing.
If you are seeing permissions without its most probably they are in areas of low pressure or on sites which are serviced.
