Frank Kelly (born 1938) is an Irish actor, whose career has spanned radio, TV, theatre, music, writing and films. An educated and learned man, he has played a wide variety of roles in Irish theatre over many years, and he has toured extensively in the USA and Canada. Despite his varied career, he is perhaps best known for playing Father Jack Hackett (an old and somewhat perverse priest who can only say "drink!" "arse!" "feck!" and "girls!") in the hit comedy series Father Ted.
