Irish Times Publication : Does my tenant have to notify me of their plans before one-year lease expires?

The first one-year lease on the property I’m letting expires in mid-August and I haven’t received any notification from the tenant to say she wants to leave, stay for another year or let me know if she needs to stay a bit longer because of Covid-19. I will be happy whichever she chooses but she is very difficult to deal with, hence my not just asking her what her plans are.

I am a responsible and conscientious landlord and I want to protect my rights while respecting the tenant’s rights. Is she obliged to notify me in advance if she intends to leave? Or if she intends to stay? If she just stays on, paying the rent but without a new lease, does this affect my legal rights?
