The older brother of Shane McGrath played a pair of games for Melbourne as a follower/forward while stationed with the RAAF at Point Cook.

With his opportunities at Melbourne limited he joined Carlton in 1945 for eight games. Coburg of the VFA had also lobbied for his services, and named him in their side expecting him to join them on the same week he debuted for the Blues. At the end of the season he was told he wouldn't be selected to play in the finals and retired from VFL football.

In 1951 McGrath was captain/coach of Charlton in the North Central League. After his football career he became president of Boort and Chairman of the North Central League.
