Marist Rangers is a GAA Club based in Auckland.
Marist Rangers was formed in 1976 by the late Paddy Somers and originally played as Mount Roskill Rangers. The name changed to Marist as many of the players came from Marist Rugby Clubs. Famous former players include Bernie and Sean McCahill who played rugby for New Zealand and Ireland respectively. Another former great Zinzan Brooke played 58 tests for the All Blacks. The story goes that his famous 47 metre drop goal against England in the semi final of the 1995 World Cup was a direct result of his gaelic football days with Marist!
Today we don’t have as many All Blacks but we do have a great group of members who compete in Mens and Ladies Football, Hurling and Camogie competitions. The club has also competed in regional New Zealand competitions such as the Wellington 7s in 2013. We also manage to have some great social nights out!
The club has a great support base of volunteers and sponsors and always look to welcome new members. In particular we would like to thank The Munster Inn, Ozone Refrigeration and Azure Physiotherapy for their ongoing support.
