Patrick Hogan (1891 – 14 July 1936) was an Irish politician.[1]

He was first elected to Dáil Éireann at the 1921 general election as a Sinn Féin candidate for the Galway constituency. He was re-elected as a TD for Galway at 1922, 1923, June 1927, September 1927, 1932 and 1933 general elections.[2]

As a supporter of the 1921 Anglo-Irish Treaty, he later joined Cumann na nGaedheal (from 1933 Fine Gael). In 1922 he was appointed to the cabinet of W. T. Cosgrave as Minister for Lands and Agriculture. He served in government until 1932. He was killed in a car accident in Aughrim, County Galway, in July 1936, while still a serving TD.

His daughter, Brigid Hogan-O'Higgins was also a Fine Gael TD for several County Galway constituencies, from 1957 to 1977.
