Born in Cork, Egan first excelled at hurling during his schooling at the North Monastery. He arrived on the inter-county scene at the age of seventeen when he first linked up with the Cork minor teams as a dual player, before later joining the under-21 sides. He made his senior debut during the 1991-92 National Hurling League. Egan went on to play a key role for Cork, and won one Munster medal and two National Hurling League games.
As a member of the Munster inter-provincial team on a number of occasions, Egan won one Railway Cup medal. At club level he is a one-time championship medallist with Delaney Rovers in the intermediate grade.
Egan was first picked for the Cork minor hurling team in 1990. He won a Munster medal that year following a 1-9 to 0-9 defeat of Clare. Cork later faced Kilkenny in the All-Ireland decider, however, both sides finished level at 3-14 apiece. In the replay Kilkenny proved too strong as Cork faced a heavy 3-16 to 0-11 defeat.
Egan added a second Munster under-21 medal to his collection in 1993 following another 1-18 to 3-9 defeat of Limerick. Once again All-Ireland success eluded the team.
On 24 May 1992 Egan made his senior hurling championship debut in a 0-22 to 0-8 Munster quarter-final defeat of Kerry. He later won his only Munster medal following a 1-22 to 3-11 defeat of Limerick in the provincial decider. Egan later missed Cork's 3-10 to 1-12 All-Ireland final defeat by Kilkenny.
Egan won his first National Hurling League medal following a marathon three-game saga with Wexford in 1993. In spite of falling short in the championship, Egan won an All-Star at the end of the year.
In 1998 Egan won his second National Hurling League medal following a 2-14 to 0-13 defeat of Waterford.
