35. Mr Short was John Arthur Short, though may or may not have been known by a different name.
21. Not the one I had in mind.
23. George (Dod) Burrell is correct, as is his brother, R P (Bob) Burrell who is the one I enjoyed watching.
25. Yes. Luke Pearce (as opposed to Pearse) was born in Wales but referees as English. All three main Dublin stations were renamed after leading figures
      in the Easter Rising who were executed by the British.

36. Not married to Jennie Lee.


I have made subtle alterations to a couple of clues to make them fairer.

Both correct, of course.

That removes one English and one Irish.

My Maths is all to pot, hence the previously missing number 9.  Still needed (after a recount or six!)

10. Not from Stewarton, as he lies over the ocean. Burns
11. Being Welsh, was he of the White Rock? Peter...
14. Dr John doubly achieved the pinnacle. Gris-Gris
16. Stop five Tessie O'Sheas. Two Ton
17. My mate is crazy. Pal....  (anagram?)
18. Did he have a fairy-tale career? Berry

Number 9 is right.
You have the first half of 17, but there is no anagram involved.
Your first thought on 16 was very close, but lacked the synonym for "stop."

Time, perhaps, for further hints towards some of the others.

06. Straw, goose, cloud, Logan.
10. Not from Stewarton, as he lies over the ocean - or rather the Channel.
11.  His surname "of the White Rock" is heard each year at the cenotaph. An engine shares his forename.
12. Dr John (observed to have been in Afghanistan) twice achieved the Rugby pinnacle.
18. Did he have a fairy tale career? Or did he give shelter?
21. Much simpler! Lofty is the key word. No geographical knowledge involved.
26. Ringer's Irish nemesis. Ringer is a surname.
28. The happy upshot of the feeding of the 5000. only one Guy had brought food, but many  ....
34 Had a rule for each hand. Vague memories of O-Level Physics.
35. You had the basic idea earlier, but needed to include the idea of extend or expand.

in the meantime anje-roo has added two correct answers.
