Thanks for your help. I appreciate it immensely.
Thomand Park has given me some advice but I'm basically looking to link this new application for retention to the original file and am I justified in doing this or will the planning authority look unfavourably on it.
I just don't know what options are open to me and what rights i have left, if any.

You can of course include reference to the previous case- best bet is usually to spell out carefully the case history as you see it, from day one without being too long-winded, including reference numbers where appropriate. Then detail why you think the development is unacceptable in planning terms (avoid over-personalising it- usually counter-productive).
If you're having difficulty, engage a planning consultant. This is their bread and butter and it would be money well spent. I don't mean any offence by this, but I get the feeling you're almost too close to this case and too wound up about it to be objective. A consultant would have the necessary objectivity, distance and knowledge to craft the objection you require.
See the Dublin City Council website for further assistance- they have pretty good 'how to' guides to your role in the planning system.

If there is still time to object then consult the planner's report from the original permission - this will give you the detailed reasoning behind the original condition - useful ammunition to be cited in your objection.
