    105a is not SPAR
    but definately STAR which is Kieran Donaghy's nickname.

    Also for 38a it says it is 6 letters when there is only actually space for 5 letters.

    Ans is
    LOGAN ; Gabby Logan ; Logan is an anagram on ANGLO

    Thanks Tullamore Dew. Pal thinks 105a is Spar. I may be wrong but I think it's Star, the nickname for Kerry's Kieran Donaghy.

    ? 16a = D-h--a.
    ? 31a = -a-l. Is it Gael.
    ? 58a = --i.
    ? 59a = O--. I presume it's Orr.
    ? 77a = --s.
    ? 79a = U--a.
    ? 89a = --a-.
    ?102a = U--e. I presume it's Urge.
    67d = --r-o.
