Getting car insurance for foreign reg car for short time period

Hi all,
I drove my car over to Switzerland (from Ireland) earlier this year and my car insurance company extended my cover for a number of months. My work contract was extended and I had meant to drive it back sooner but I didn't get a chance. I now intend to drive it back in September but my car insurance company are now cancelling my policy because I've been out of the country too long.
Does anyone know where I can get cover for a month or so, so I can drive it back? The car is registered in Ireland. Any advice would be appreciated!

Border insurance/Frontier insurance. The German term is Grenzversicherung.

You can get it at any customs office. Locations (not all are at the border) and opening hours:

It is CHF 250 for 1 Month or CHF 1200 for 6 Months.
It is valid in most of the green card states.
