Liveliness in frisky priest (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

esprit

Here is my best explanation:

'liveliness' is the definition.

(esprit is a kind of liveliness)

'frisky priest' is the subsidiary indication.

'frisky' indicates an anagram.

'priest' anagrammed gives 'esprit'.

'in' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for esprit that I've seen before include "vivacity", "Sprightliness", "French morale as in de corps?", "Liveliness of wit", "Group morale is . . . . . . de corps", "Morale of the French", "wit from France", "Vivacious wit", "... de corps, team spirit" and "Wit, liveliness".)
