Patrick "Pirren" McCarthy (born 11 March 1992)[1] is an Australian rules footballer formerly in the Australian Football League.


McCarthy plays primarily as a tall defender. Originally from South Australia, McCarthy attended and played school football for Sacred Heart College in Somerton Park.[2] He played under 18s and reserves football for the Glenelg Football Club in the SANFL up to the 2010 season,[3] and he represented South Australia at the 2010 AFL Under 18 Championships, where he was selected as a defender in the Under 18 All-Australian team.[1]

McCarthy was recruited by the Carlton Football Club with its second round selection in the 2010 AFL National Draft (No. 34 overall). He was given guernsey number 24.[1] He played three seasons with Carlton, playing mostly for its VFL-affiliate, the Northern Bullants/Blues. He played his sole senior AFL match in the last round of the 2012 season.[4]

McCarthy was delisted at the end of the 2013 season.[5] He returned to play for Glenelg in 2014.[6]
