James McClean pays for six homeless people to have food and shelter in heartwarming gesture
A heartwarming gesture
We're now in the season of goodwill and kindness onto others but as he has consistently shown throughout his career, James McClean is the perfect embodiment of that.
In years gone past, we've seen the Republic of Ireland international make a 'considerable donation' to help fund a heart transplant for a small child in Derry, help pay for the funeral of child that died tragically in a car accident and contribute towards the medical treatment of a baby born last year who has spent most of his young life in hospital due to a series of medical problems.
On this note, the Stoke City player has also recently paid for six homeless people to have an extended stay in a hotel with meals provided for.
In a post on Facebook, McClean's sister, Mary-Jane, shared the latest story of her brother's kindness.
"My brother has a huge heart. Him and Erin (McClean's wife) just paid for six homeless people to stay in the Maldron Hotel until Wednesday with food. We're just away collecting them now and taking them to the hotel ."
An incredibly kind thing to do but as he has frequently show, this act of decency is just the norm for the former Derry City man.
As for McClean's immediate future with Ireland, here's hoping that he has a big role to play as Mick McCarthy's side face Switzerland, Denmark, Georgia, and Gibraltar on the road to Euro 2020.
