Dundalk Football Club can confirm the signings of four players on Tuesday.
Michael Rafter, Robert Waters, Luke Danville and Dan Cunningham have all committed their immediate futures to the Lilywhites.
Tipperary native Rafter (pictured) is a 19-year-old forward who previously spent time in England at Colchester United, before getting his first taste of League of Ireland football with Waterford United last season.
He is a former Borris/Saint Kevin’s and Saint Michael’s youngster, while he has been capped at all levels between U15 and U19 by the Republic of Ireland.
Cork-born Waters is a 21-year-old midfielder. Currently a student, he has played for Cork City and UCC, and was part of the Irish U18 home-based squad in 2008.
Galway native Cunningham, who has just turned 21, is a left-back who joins from Mervue United, the youngster following Ger Hanley and John Mountney to Oriel Park. The young defender is a twin brother of Greg, who is currently on loan to Nottingham Forest from Manchester City.
Danville arrives from England, having previously played for Wakefield. The 21-year-old is from Barnsley.
