One of Hogan's earliest works A Description of Ireland in 1598 was published in Dublin in 1878. Based on an unpublished manuscript from the archives in Clongowes-Wood College the text gives a brief description of Irish counties and the principle families inhabiting them. Hogan’s accompanying notes offer an impressive amount of geographical, historical and genealogical information.
