The Government has demanded that former Console bosses repay €150,000 in grants.
Paul and Patricia Kelly were involved at senior management level of the charity.
The Kellys now been asked to repay Emigrant Support Programme grants in full.
The grants are paid to organisations that provide support & advice services to Irish emigrants abroad.
Grants totalling €150,000 were paid over three years (2013, 2014 and 2015).
The Department of Foreign Affairs has confirmed it has sent letters asking for repayment following an audit.
The Department said in a statement: "There is an investigation ongoing by the Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement into issues surrounding the liquidation of Console, and as such there will be no further comment from the Department on this matter."
The charity was liquidated last year amid reports of extravagant spending of the organisation's money.
