McGinnity was recruited with the seventh pick in the 2008 Pre-Season Draft, and made his debut for the West Coast Eagles in 2009 against St Kilda, playing 7 games in his debut year and 17 in 2010. In round one of the 2010 season, he was one of the Eagles' best, winning 24 disposals and kicking a goal. In 2011 he has continued to play in a tagging role. In August 2011, McGinnity was fined A$2500 and suspended by the West Coast Eagles for one match after allegations that he had threatened to "rape" Ricky Petterd's mother during the Eagles' round 21 match against Melbourne.

McGinnity is most remembered as the player Collingwood captain Nick Maxwell controversially took out of the game through a seemingly illegal shepherd during a NAB Cup match in early 2009. As a result, McGinnity was injured and was out of the side for 10 weeks. For his part, Maxwell was initially suspended for four matches, but his club launched a successful appeal which saw Maxwell exonerated.
