Old priest from Chapelizod (3)


I believe the answer is:


'old priest' is the definition.
(Biblical character)

'from chapelizod' is the wordplay.
'from' indicates a hidden word.
'ELI' is hidden within 'chapelizod'.

(Other definitions for eli that I've seen before include "Priest, teacher of Samuel" , "OT high priest" , "Teacher of prophet Samuel" , "Old Testament priest, the prophet Samuel's teacher" , "- Whitney invented the cotton gin in seventeen ninety three" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
