A native of County Monaghan, he was educated at St Mary's College, Dundalk and attended University College Dublin. He became a barrister in 1904 and senior counsel in 1924.

He was first elected to Dáil Éireann as a National League Party Teachta Dála (TD) for the Dublin South constituency at the June 1927 general election. In August 1927 joined the Cumann na nGaedheal party. Other former independents who joined "Mr Cosgrave's ranks" included Labour independent John Daly and Bryan Cooper.

He lost his seat at the September 1927 general election but was elected as a Cumann na nGaedheal TD for the Dublin North constituency at a by-election on 3 April 1928 caused by the disqualification of James Larkin due to bankruptcy. He lost his seat again at the 1932 general election but was re-elected at the 1933 general election. He stood as a Fine Gael candidate at the 1937 general election but did not retain his seat. He also stood unsuccessfully as an independent candidate at the 1943 general election.

He died in Rathmines, Dublin, on 27 May 1959.
