Frank J Cunningham was born in Co. Mayo, Ireland. As a young adult, Frank studied at a Gaelic-speaking boarding school. At the end of his studies at the University of Galway, he traveled and worked across Western Europe, for five years. During this period, Cunningham immersed himself in the indigenous cultures of the countries where he lived, learning native languages (French and German). In the mid 1980’s, he immigrated to the United States.
He has since lived in New York City, Nantucket, and The Hamptons.
