Born in Ireland, he was moderately successful in his youth, but he retired at age 26. He went to England to find work and when he started running again, he changed his name (originally Cregan) to Hogan in the belief that was needed to be allowed to represent Great Britain. But he caught the attention of the Irish selectors and was sent to Tokyo. Disillusioned with what he felt to be discrimination against British-based athletes, he turned his back on Ireland and decided to compete for Great Britain. As a Briton, he won the marathon at the European Championships, but his second participation at the Olympics, now representing Great Britain, was no success.
