The Archdeacon of Raphoe is a senior ecclesiastical officer within the Anglican Diocese of Derry and Raphoe.[1] As such he or she is responsible for the disciplinary supervision of the clergy [2] within the Raphoe part of the Diocese,[3] which is by far the largest.[4]

The archdeaconry can trace its history back to Thomas O'Nahan, who held the office from 1299 to 1306,[5] to the current incumbent David Huss who assumed office in 2013.[6]
