Sir Antony Patrick MacDonnell (1844 - 1925) was an Irish-born British civil servant, much involved in the administration of India. He was Permanent Under-Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland (1902–1908).
The Chief Secretary's lodge was in Phoenix Park.
The Chief Secretary for Ireland was a key office-holder of state in the British administration in Ireland. He was in theory #2 in Dublin Castle, an aide to the #1 Lord Lieutenant (= Viceroy). However, from the late 18c., the office frequently eclipsed the Lord Lieutenant's. The Chief Secretary managed the legislative business for the Government in the Irish House of Commons, in which he sat as an M.P.

George Wyndham (1863 – 1913) was chief secretary of Ireland 1900 - 1905.
From Wikipedia: He was an English politician and also a man of letters, noted for his elegance, and one of The Souls. He was a great-grandson of Irish revolutionary Lord Edward Fitzgerald, whom he greatly resembled physically. He brought forward a devolution scheme to deal with the Home Rule question. He also successfully saw the significant 1903 Irish Land Act into law. This change in the law ushered in the most radical change in history in Ireland's land ownership. Before it, Ireland's land was largely owned by landlords; within years of the Acts, most of the land was owned by their former tenants, who had been subvented in their purchases by government subsidies.
