Fr Frank Mullany Frank Mullany was born in Dublin on 27 September 1931. He attended National Schools in Clontarf and Ballina, moving on to St Muredach's, Ballina and St Jarlath's, Tuam before joining the Columbans in 1949. Ordained on December 21, 1955, Frank went with nine others to Korea. Stationed in many poor parishes and generally on his own, Frank was a self made engineer, builder and handyman. He retired to Ireland at the end of 1999. In 2006 the fruit of his work over fifty years was published under the title Symbolism in Korean Ink Brush Painting. With more than 200 colour plates this volume explores the vast heritage of Korean ink brush painting providing a rich panorama across the entire spectrum of Korean art - painting, pottery, calligraphy and literature. Frank died in the Columban Nursing Home, Dalgan Park, Navan on October 18, 2012. His Columban colleague, Fr Denis Monagahan, pays the following tribute. "I often thought that Frank Mullany would have made a wonderful teacher. He had a number of attributes that would have been necessary as a teacher. First he had the knowledge necessary for the job, secondly he had the skills to make that knowledge understandable to even the dullest pupil and thirdly he had the patience to explain over and over again until the person understood it fully. "He valued knowledge and he had the gift of retaining everything that he ever read. I remember that he had a cook who had just graduated from primary school and was rather a slow learner. Frank had her sent to middle school and high school and she graduated with honours from both. He then taught her how to use a camera and she turned out to be a very good photographer. He had that interest in people and tried to urge them to fulfill their full potential. "Frank knew nothing about photography but decided to learn about it. I had been a photographer for a long time and I advised him what camera he should get and the best way to learn was to get out there and take photos and he could learn from his mistakes. That however was not the way Frank went about things. He got every book he could on the subject and studied them at length before he even got a camera. Then he got a camera (not the one I recommended) and within a short time he was taking better photos than I had ever taken so much so that I gave up photography. That was his way of doing things, he studied everything at length and retained everything he studied. "I had a friend who had a very large collection of antiques and works of art. I though Frank might be interested in it and introduced him to my friend. While they were looking at the collection my friend's wife and I decided to have a cigarette while we waited. By the time Frank and my friend returned we had nearly smoked a pack of cigarettes. They were hours looking at the collection. Frank identified the artist in every painting and he was able to tell him what each antique was, when it was made, and where. The friend was absolutely amazed, and told me later that he had never met anyone so knowledgeable, not even his own brother who was a history professor in Oxford. "Frank never paraded his knowledge and was actually quite shy until he got to know the person. It came as a surprise to many when he produced his book 'Symbolism in Korean Ink Brush Painting'. He had previously written a book in Korean on one of the early Korean priests, a man called Augustine Lee. Frank found the study of Korean difficult and was not inclined to say much in public meetings were Korean was the language spoken, so it was a great surprise to Korean priests when he brought out this book in Korean. "One of the outstanding memories of Frank beside his gentle nature was that he was a complete gentleman and always respectful of others be they Columbans or Koreans. "He always had an interest in Korean art and culture. This was probably because he also had a great interest in his own Irish culture. This was not always encouraged or respected among Columbans who sometimes regarded such traits as somehow effeminate. The Korean Columban had to be a strong rugged individual, bright, good at sports and untouched by culture. We came here to convert pagans not immerse ourselves in the Korean culture. We now realize how stupid that was but Frank realized that from the beginning and studied Korean culture when it was not fashionable to do so. He never felt obliged to follow the herd instinct of the group.
