Hidden Dublin- Chaloner's Corner in Trinity

Bernd Biege, the Guide tells us, " Dublin's smallest graveyard, a resting place for notable academics.
Size isn't everything - Chaloner's Corner, Dublin's smallest cemetery, is tucked away into a corner of Trinity College, hemmed in by buildings and a footpath. Only a handful of persons found their eternal rest in this busy place (but more are interred either under the Chapel or in a nearby college cemetery). Worth a look for its curiosity value when you visit Trinity College.
 The most notable grave is Dr. Luke Chaloner's, he was the first provost of Trinity College (and gave his name to the cemetery in a corner ...)."

Interesting! It's just to the right of the chapel.
