Caolan Rafferty finishes in top-five of European Nations Championship as Dundalk Golf Club prepare his welcome home

Dundalk Golf Club's Caolan Rafferty.

Caolan Rafferty followed up his win at the West of Ireland Championship with a fourth place finish in the European Nations competition in Sotogrande, Spain, this week.

The 26-year-old closed two shots behind the winner, Tom Sloman of England, after carding a final round, one over par 73 to finish on +8. 

Once again the best of the Irish, Rafferty lay tied-sixth approaching round four having shot 73, 74 and 74 in difficult conditions over the opening three days.

To celebrate Rafferty's West' win, Dundalk Golf Club will hold a ceremony to welcome him home this evening, beginning at 6pm.
