Hogan was born on 10 October 1885, the only son of Patrick Hogan, a labourer, and Bridget O'Connor of Culleen townland, Kilmaley, County Clare. In the 1901 Census, his occupation is given as house-to-house postman.
As a young man he joined the Gaelic League and the Irish Volunteers; however, he was deported to England for his activities. During the Irish War of Independence he fought against the Black and Tans in County Clare. After the Anglo-Irish Treaty he became an official with the Irish Transport and General Workers' Union (ITGWU). He was elected to Dáil Éireann as a Labour Party Teachta Dála (TD) for the Clare constituency in 1923. He lost his seat at the 1938 general election, and was subsequently elected to Seanad Éireann on the Labour Panel. While sitting in the Dáil, he qualified as a barrister-at-law and was called to the bar in 1936. He remained in the Seanad until 1943 when he returned to the Dáil at the 1943 general election. In 1951 he became Ceann Comhairle of Dáil Éireann, a position he held until 1967. He welcomed United States President John F. Kennedy to the house on 28 June 1963 during his visit to Ireland.
