Keogh began his playing career at Cabinteely FC and St Josephs' Boys AFC in South Dublin before moving to Leeds United at the age of sixteen. He was selected for the Republic of Ireland Under-Eighteen squad and played twice in the Viseu Tournament against the hosts Portugal, who they beat 1-0 and Norway, who they drew with 1-1. The young Irishman never managed to make his mark at Leeds, and so was subsequently loaned out to then League Two side Scunthorpe United at the beginning of the 2004-05 season. There, he made his league debut on 7th August 2004 in a 3-1win over Rochdale. He scored two goals in twelve appearances, of which three were off the bench, before an injury crisis at Elland Road caused him to be recalled to his parent club. He made his only appearance for Leeds as an eighty-sixth minute substitute for Sean Gregan in a 2-1 League Cup loss to Portsmouth. He then spent the rest of 2004 playing reserve gamesfor Leeds, until he was loaned to Bury in January 2005 as a replacement for Preston-bound David Nugent. In February 2005, while on loan at Bury, where he had scored twice in just four starts, Scunthorpe United Manager Brian Laws made an offer to Leeds United. And on 14th February 2005, Keogh rejoined the club he had started the season with, for 50,000. He only scored only one further goal, but was part of the team which won promotion to League One as runners-up behind Yeovil Town. Meanwhile he was starting to make his mark with the Republic of Ireland's Under-Nineteen side. He made his debut for them on 18th October 2004 and scored twice in a 4-0 win over Andorra in the UEFA Tournament. Two days later he was in the team that went down 1-0 to Cyprus and on 24th October 2004 he was in the team that defeated Russia 2-1. He also played three games in Group seven of the UEFA Tournament of the following season, one being a full game on 25th April 2005, in a 0-1 defeat by Poland and was a fifty-sixth minute substitute for Diarmuid O'Carroll in a 1-1 draw with Albania, two days later, and an eighty-third minute substitute for Paul McShane in a 0-1 defeat by Serbia & Montenegro on 29th April 2005. He truly made his mark in the 2005-06 season, notably after Scunthorpe United signed fellow nineteen-year-old striker Billy Sharp for 100,000 from Sheffield United. Keogh became part of the most potent strike-force in League One, scoring thirty-eight goals between them, with Keogh netting fifteen of them. He also scored Scunthorpe's goal in the FA Cup 3rd Round visit to Manchester City, beating England International goalkeeper David James in the process. On 12th January 2007, it was announced that Keogh had rejected an improved contract offer from Scunthorpe United and would therefore be free to leave the club at the end of the 2006-07 season. He received a League One Championship medal when Scunthorpe were crowned Champions at the end of the season. As he was under the age of twenty-four, Scunthorpe were able to command a fee for him, either as a direct offer or via a tribunal. Having had a bid of 500,000 turned down, Keogh signed for Wolverhampton Wanderers on 23rd January 2007. He signed a three and a half year contract with the transfer set to cost Wolves an initial 600,000 and potentially rising to 850,000 with add-ons. He had scored twenty-three goals in eighty starts and seventeen substitute appearances for the Irons. Keogh earned plaudits for his displays for Wolves. He notched five goals for the club before the end of the season which helped them to reach the play-offs. His good form was rewarded with his first call-up to the Republic of Ireland squad by Steve Staunton in March 2007, as a replacement for the injured Ex-Leeds Junior Caleb Folan. He went on to make his debut for the senior team, in the starting eleven but being replaced after seventy minutes by Joe Gamble, on 23rd May 2007 in a friendly against Ecaudor at the Giants Stadium, New Jersey, and kept his place in the squad for the early-season friendly in Aarhus, Denmark when he came on as a forty-sixth minute substitute for Stephen Hunt in a 4-0 win over Denmark on 22nd August 2007. He was allocated the number nine jersey for the 2007-08 campaign and scored eleven goals as Wolves missed out on the play-offs on goal difference. For Ireland he played three games in their European Championship campaign first as an eighty-second minute substitute for Lee Carsley in a 0-1 loss to the Czech Republic in Prague, then two starts on 13th October 2007, playing eighty minutes before being replaced by Aiden McGeady in a 0-0 home draw with Germany and four days later he played sixty-three minutes in a 1-1 home draw with Cyprus before being replaced by the same player. He scored his first International goal in the final minute of the 1-1 home draw with Serbia after coming on to replace Stephen Hunt in the eighty-first minute on 24th May 2008 and five days later he made his seventh appearance in a 1-0 win over Columbia when he played eighty-eight minutes before being replaced by Wes Hoolihan. 2008-09 saw Keogh's first team opportunities at Molineux limited as Chris Iwelumo and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake led the CCCL top scorers list. In February 2009 Keogh signed a new contract with the club until Summer 2012 and also qualified for a CCCL championship medal. He also picked up four more caps, three being in the World Cup Qualifiers. On 6th September 2008 he came on for the final three minutes as the replacement for Aiden MGeady in a 2-1 win over Georgia in Mainz. He started the friendly on 19th November 2008 with Poland but was replaced on the hour by Stephen Hunt in a 2-3 defeat at Croke Park. He then came on as an eighty-ninth minute substitute for Aiden McGeady on 28th March 2009 in a 1-1 draw with Bulgaria in Dublin and on 1st April 2009 he started another World Cup Qualifier, but was replaced by Caleb Folan after twenty-one minutes against Italy in a 1-1 draw at Bari. Injuries to other strikers meant that Keogh was the first choice Wolves striker in the early 2009-10 season and he scored the winner at Wigan Athletic. In December 2009 he suffered an ankle injury that needed surgery and side-lined him for three months. He was only able to feature fleetingly in substitute roles after his recovery as Wolves fought for EPL survival. His International progress was similarly restricted and he managed just two caps in the season, one in a friendly in Limerick on 8th September 2009 against South Africa in which he played the first seventy-eight minutes before being replaced by Damien Duff and the second a World Cup Qualifier in Dublin against Montenegro on 14th October 2009 when he came on for Stephen Hunt in the eighty-eighth minute in a 0-0 draw to earn his thirteenth cap. The 2010-11 season saw Keogh loaned out firstly to Cardiff City from 27th August 2010 until 27th January 2011, in which time he scored twice in sixteen League games, of which five were as a substitute and he also started two F.A. Cup ties without scoring. On his return to Molineux he was again loaned out on 31st January 2011 until the end of the season on 8th May 2011, he managed just one League goal, in four starts and five games from the bench. However he did accumulate a further eight caps for Ireland, the first being as a fifty-sixth minute substitute for Cillian Sheridan in a 0-1 defeat by Argentina in Dublin on 11th August 2010. This was followed by three European Championship games all as a substitute, on 3rd September 2010in the eighty-fifth minute for Robbie Keane in a 1-0 win in Erevan against Armenia, then four days later in the eighty-second minute for Kevin Doyle in a 3-1 win over Andorra in Dublin and the on 12th October 2010 in the seventy-first minute for Keith Fahey in a 1-1 draw with Slovakia in Zilina. He was again a substitute for Damien Duff in a 3-0 win over Wales in Dublin on 8th February 2011, then on 29th March 2011 in Dublin he started against Uruguay but was replaced by Anthony Stokes in the eighty-fifth minute in a 2-3 defeat. He was a substitute as the Republic hammered Northern Ireland 5-0 in Dublin on 24th May 2011 and replaced Robbie Keane after sixty-three minutes. He started the friendly 2-0 win against Italy in Liege on 7th June 2011 and he played seventy-five minutes before being replaced by Keith Treacy. He played his twenty-second International on 10th August 2011 at the Aviva Stadium Dublin in a 0-0 draw with Croatia, when he came on as a sixty-fourth minute replacement for Stephen Hunt. Just five days later he was loaned to Leeds United for the rest of the calendar year and had a good run in place of the injured Luciano Becchio. After the Argentinian had recovered from his injury Keogh was preferred and Becchio played from the bench but as his fitness returned Becchio was preferred and Leeds decided not to take on Keogh on a permanent basis. He returned to Molineux on 1st January 2012 and on 31st January he was sold to MillWall. He signed a three and a half year contract and the fee was thought to be 500,000. Keogh's record at Molineux was nineteen League goals scored in seventy-nine starts and thirty-six substitute appearances, while in the F.A. Cup he had netted three times in five games, one of which was from the bench. He had also managed one goal in three starts and three more from the bench in the League Cup and two play-off Finals games without scoring. He soon got amongst the goals for Millwall and formed a good partnership with Harry Kane who was on loan from Tottenham Hotspur and by the end of the 2011-12 season he had scored ten goals in seventeen starts and one game from the bench in the League and played one F.A. Cup tie without scoring.
