Early life[edit]

Keogh was born in Limerick, Ireland, and grew up in Dromkeen, County Limerick.

In the following season, playing number 8, Keogh led the U21s to Six Nations Championship victories over Scotland, Italy, France and England. His side's only defeat that year came against eventual champions Wales, the Irish defeated by the narrowest of margins (20–19) in Ebbw Vale.

During the months of February and March 2007 having featured prominently in the victories over Edinburgh and Connacht and also shone in the Heineken Cup quarter-final defeat to Wasps at the end of March, was announced as the Bank of Scotland (Ireland) Leinster Player of the Month for February/March.
