The Republic of Ireland international, along with his wife Erin, collected six people and took them to a hotel and paid for their rooms and food.
The 29-year-old's sister, Mary-Jane McClean, posting on Facebook, said: "My brother has huge heart. Him and Erin just paid for 6 homeless people to stay in the Maldron Hotel for a few nights with food. We're just away collecting them now and taking them to the hotel.
"They already left a wee man to the hotel who lays at Foyleside- the critter is buzzing.
