Nicholas J.”Nicky” English (born 1962) is a former Irish hurling manager and former player from Cullen, County Tipperary, in Ireland. He played hurling with his local club Lattin-Cullen GAA and with the Tipperary senior inter-county team from 1982 until 1996. His claiming of a position on the Tipperary Hurling Team of the Century marks English out as one of Tipperary’s greatest-ever players.

English has also been the recipient of numerous awards and honours off the field. In 1989 his hurling prowess earned him the prestigious Texaco Hurler of the Year award.
