After attending St Vincent's School, he entered the arts faculty of Queen's College, Cork, in 1875.(1) It is not entirely clear whether he graduated or not, but at some stage he evidently decided to take up engineering as a career and served a pupilage with his elder brother MICHAEL JOSEPH MCMULLEN. MICHAEL JOSEPH MCMULLEN. (2) In 1882 he exhibited an design entitled 'What the Farm Labourers require' at the Irish Exhibition of Arts & Manufactures, Dublin (no. 623). He opened his own office in Cork in 1886 or 1887.(3) His practice was a varied one, including ecclesiastical, hospital, industrial, commercial and domestic work, chiefly in the city and county of Cork. His best-known building is the Honan Chapel at University College, Cork, erected in 1914-16. He was architect to the South Infirmary, Cork, for some thirty years and was appointed local engineer and valuer for the Cork Junction Railway in 1904.(4)

In addition to running a successful practice, McMullen played an active part in the life of the community, devoting much time to city hospital work. He was appointed a magistrate for the borough of Cork in 1903(5) and High Sheriff in 1908. In 1910 the honour of Knight Commander of the Order of St Gregory the Great was conferred on him by Pope Pius X. According to his obituary in the Irish Builder, he acted as City Engineer for Cork for some years.(6) He died in 1933, leaving an estate valued at £23,729.(7) He had married Margaretta, daughter of J.T. Murphy, of Macroom, in 1907. His son JAMES FINBARRE MCMULLEN[2]  JAMES FINBARRE MCMULLEN[2] carried on the practice.  His pupils and assistants included DENIS SANTRY. DENIS SANTRY.
