Big dick energy, or BDE for short is a term which has come to prominence online over the last month or so. The phrase which has been used to describe people that are confident without being cocky, self assured, but not smug, people who have the security of not needing approval or plaudits to know their worth.

The (albeit crass) phrase has been used to describe the likes of Prince, David Bowie, Jeff Goldblum, Idris Elba and Cate Blanchett. But who among our wealth of Irish sports stars has BDE (Big Dick Energy)? Well here's who...

1. Richard Dunne

Dunne's unassuming nature and commanding presence as a centre-half make him a shoe in for BDE.

2. Mick McCarthy 

People claim that the first person to be christened with BDE is the late Anthony Bourdain, but it could just as easily been used to describe Mick McCarthy and his honest, no-nonsense approach to football management.

3. Michael Lyster

I'm just going to leave this here.

4. Sonia O'Sullivan

BDE is not a male only phenomenon with Sonia O'Sullivan a great example of a woman demonstrating the traits of BDE. The Cork native always appears down to earth in interviews despite her illustrious career.

5. Kieran Donaghy

The Kerry footballer's BDE has served him well over his long career in Gaelic football.


6. Paul O'Connell


Bottles Paul O'Connell's BDE go for outrageous prices on the black market.

7. The O'Donovan Brothers


The O'Donovan's definitely have BDE and possibly every other energy that it is humanly possible to have.


8. Tadhg Furlong

Furlong has proved in his self-deprecating interviews as well as colossal performances on the pitch that he has BDE in spades.

9. Wes Hoolahan

Whenever Wesley Hoolahan was called upon by his club or country the Dubliner exuded calm and confidence. A prime example of a smaller gentleman oozing BDE.

10. Jim McGuinness

Jim McGuinness has more BDE in his eyebrows than you do in your entire being.


11. Paul McGrath

I don't think I need to persuade anyone that Paul McGrath has BDE.

12. Dan Shanahan

Shanahan's laid back persona has BDE written all over it.

13. Katie Taylor

Along with being a supreme boxer, Taylor is also a big proponent of BDE. The Bray native never gets too ahead of herself in spite of her meteoric rise to fame over the past couple of years.
