On 6 January 2007, at 16 years and 55 days old, McCarthy became the youngest player ever to score in Hamilton Academical's history when he scored in a Scottish Cup defeat against Livingston. He also won the SPFA Young Player of the Year award for the 2008–09 season. Hamilton moved to Wigan Athletic on 21 July 2009, on a five-year deal, believed to be worth just under ÂŖ1.2 million. He scored his first goal for Wigan in the FA Cup third round victory against fellow Premier League teamHull City on 2 January 2010 and marked his first Premier League start with a goal in a 2–0 victory away to Wolverhampton Wanderers on 16 January 2010. In August 2011, McCarthy signed a new five-year contract at the club. McCarthy made his international debut for the Republic of Ireland Under-17s in January 2007 against Italy. He was quickly promoted to the Under-18s and played his first game at that level versus Germany in November 2007. McCarthy received his first call-up to the Republic of Ireland national squad in February 2010, for a friendly with Brazil played in London. McCarthy made his competitive debut for the Republic of Ireland on 26 March 2011 in a UEFA Euro 2012 qualifier against Macedonia.
