A woman who wants to visit her family in Dundalk may be forced to abandon her trip - as local hotels and B&B’s refuse to let her dog stay.

Nicola Grantham, living in the UK, is looking to visit her father Francis O’Brien in September.

A month has passed since Nicola begun her search to find a place to stay with her partner and their staffordshire terrier named Buster.

Speaking to The Dundalk Democrat this week about her search, Nicola says she won’t return home if she can’t bring Buster with her.

She said: “Buster is part of the family. I will not visit Dundalk if I can’t bring him with me.

“I have tried a lot of places around Dundalk and just outside the town, but nobody will let us stay.

“I know Buster is a staffordshire, but he is a family pet. He has never harmed anybody.”

Buster actually is one of the nicest dogs in the UK - he came third in the prestigious best male dog contest at the RSPCA in the UK.

“We also have a little kitten, but we won’t be bringing her with us, but the two of them play in the house all day.

“He’s such a friendly dog and I wish somewhere can let us stay.”

If you can help Nicola find a place to stay for just four nights, contact Martin Grant at The Dundalk Democrat on mgdundalk@gmail.com or call 0429395612
