Welcome to the home of the Markham Irish Canadian Rugby Club
2013 McCormick Cup Champions!
The Markham Irish Canadian Rugby Club provides competitive rugby programs for all age groups from Under 12 to Senior Men and Women.

The ICRC, founded in 1950, has an enviable record of cup and league success by its senior men and women teams.

July 16th: It is with sadness that we pass on the news that Atholl Blair died from natural causes in Cobourg, Ontario on Monday July 14th in his 97th Year.
Atholl was a founding member, the first Captain and first President of the Irish Canadian Rugby Club in 1950.
He was also one of the early Members of The Ontario Rugby Union who gathered, along with Freddie Miller, in 1950 in Riverdale Park to re-establish rugby in Ontario after the war.
Although he retired from playing after being injured in 1950, Atholl continued to support the club off the field and as a vocal supporter on the sideline.
At the request of the Family there will be a private service later in the year in his beloved Northern Ireland.
