Athlone GAA launched the Frank Starken Memorial Golf Classic 2013 in Áras Ciarán last Wednesday night. This is the seventh year of the Classic and that it has been so well supported is testament to the great legacy of the late Frank Starken. Frank was especially committed to the development of underage football and the boys and girls who started out with Frank are now making their mark for the club's adult teams. The Classic will take place in Athlone Golf Club on Friday 27th of September.
