A member of the Ó hÍceadha bardic family, he received his early education in his native place, entered the college of St. Antony at Leuven (French: Louvain), which had just been founded for Irish Catholic students, and received the Franciscan habit on 1 November 1607. Among his teachers at Leuven were the Irish scholars Hugh Mac an Bhaird (Ward) and Hugh Mac Caghwell, later Roman Catholic Archbishop of Armagh.
After his ordination to the priesthood, Hickey was appointed lecturer in theology at Leuven, and subsequently professor in the college of St. Francis at Cologne. In 1619 he was summoned to Rome to collaborate with Luke Wadding in preparing for publication the Annals of the Franciscan Order, and the works of Duns Scotus.
He took an active part in the labours of the commissions appointed by Pope Urban VIII to revise the Roman Breviary, and to examine into the affairs of the Eastern Church. At the general chapter of the order held in Rome in 1639, he was elected definitor general.
He lived for some time at S. Pietro in Montorio on the Janiculum and, from 1624 till his death, in the college of St. Isidore.
