He was appointed to the office on 31 May 2012, having served as Bluemantle Pursuivant from 2005. After graduating from Cambridge University, O'Donoghue worked for several years as a genealogist and researcher, including time spent as research assistant to two Windsor Heralds—the late Theobald D Mathew and William George Hunt.
With Clive Cheesman, currently the Richmond Herald of Arms in Ordinary, O'Donoghue is the current co-editor of The Coat of Arms, published by The Heraldry Society. The two officers of arms took over that position in 2005 from the late John Brooke-Little, former Clarenceux King of Arms.
