Who We Are

Since our founding in 2000, Markham Irish Canadian Rugby Club has served the sports and recreation needs of individuals and families with pride. With both indoor and outdoor facilities, we are the prime destination for sports leagues, tournaments, and competitions. We also feature a wide array of entertainment opportunities—come join in on the fun!


Our History

Our club originates from the Irish Canadian Rugby Club and The Markham Rugby Football Club which merged in 2010. The combined clubs have a rich history of success at both senior and junior levels having won multiple Ontario Cups and League Championships. The Markham Irish Canadian Rugby Club strives to provide positive rugby experiences for all age groups from Under 8 to Senior Men and Women. The club operates out of Markham Ontario and draws members from the surrounding municipalities.


The Markham Irish Values

Our rugby club is a place for everyone to experience the joys of sport, competition and camaraderie. Come alone, with friends or the whole family—let’s have some fun!


We want to encourage all youth, women & men to come out and be part of our club-there's a spot for everyone!. Markham Irish is an environment to learn the game, improve skills, and compete at any level.


Engaging everyone in this sport can bring a community together. We pride ourselves on not just connecting our senior teams with our junior and mini's but also in engaging the community and helping out around Markham in various ways.


Enjoying the sport alongside friends and family can have a lasting impact. Our biggest success comes from the enjoyment that our members have being a part of this club. Ultimately, the joy of playing and interacting with teammates is the real winner!

Markham Land 


The City of Markham is situated upon traditional territories of the Anishinaabe Peoples and of the Haudenosaunee Peoples. These territories are covered by the Upper Canada Treaties. We begin today by acknowledging that we walk upon the traditional territories of Indigenous Peoples and we recognize their history, spirituality, culture, and stewardship of the land. We are grateful for the opportunity to play rugby on this land. More information can be found by clicking Learn More and looking under Truth and Reconciliation
