Last week we reported how Nicola Grantham, now living in the UK, was trying to visit her father Francis O’Brien in September.

Last week we reported how Nicola Grantham, now living in the UK, was trying to visit her father Francis O’Brien in September.

Having exhausted all avenues in finding a dog friendly place for her staffordshire terrier named Buster, Nicola’s hopes of returning home looked bleak.

The paper had only hit the shelves when several local guesthouses contacted us to say they could help.

Little Haven B&B, Glen Gat House, The Pilot Station Giles Quay and Gerry Hand in Collon all offered their assistance to Nicola.

Reacting to the news, Nicola thanked The Dundalk Democrat and is looking forward to visiting Dundalk with her partner and Buster.

“I can’t believe the reaction. It’s really great that people are willing to assist us and allowing Buster to stay. I understand he is a staffordshire, but he is our house pet. He is like our baby. I would not have been able to leave him here in the UK.

“I would like to thank The Dundalk Democrat for helping us find a place to stay. I can now come to Dundalk to see my dad and family.”
