Off the top of my head:
Bonner (Celtic)
Hughton/Morris (Spurs/Celtic)
O'Leary/McGrath (Arsenal/Man United)
McCarthy/Moran (Celtic/Man United)
Staunton (Liverpool)
Houghton (Liverpool)
Townsend (Chelsea/Villa)
Whelan/Sheedy (Liverpool/Everton)
Quinn/Cascarino (Arsenal/Villa)
Aldridge (Liverpool)

There is some drop off in Irish representation in the top teams in Britain, even with Celtic.
Charlton had it good.

Big drop off, but far more foreign players playing in UK nowadays. Chelsea have won 5 consecutive youth cup and keep sending their young players out on loan.

The Ireland u19s are hope for the future. They have players with the top clubs too , United Spurs, Liverpool  whether they can get their chance or not.
