Randolph Barlow, B.D. (Randulph, Ranulph, Randall or Ralph Barlow; c. 1572–1638) was an Anglican prelate who served in the Church of Ireland as the Archbishop of Tuam from 1629 to 1638.

Born in around 1572, he was educated at Cambridge University, England, and graduated with a Bachelor of Divinity degree. His first known ecclesiastical appointment was a canon of Kildare Cathedral, holding the Prebendary of Geashill (1614–17).[1] He was also appointed Archdeacon of Meath in 1612,[2] Dean of Leighlin (1614–18)[3] and Precentor of Ossory (1615–18).[4] He was then appointed the Dean of Christ Church, Dublin in 1618.[5]

He was nominated the Archbishop of Tuam on 6 February 1629 and consecrated at Drogheda in April 1629.[6][7][8] He was permitted to hold the deanery of Christ Church, Dublin and the rectory of Athenry in commendam.[6] He appears to retain the archdeaconry of Meath until the next archdeacon was appointed in 1633,[2] and resigned the deanery of Christ Church, Dublin on 17 December 1634.[5]

He died in office at Tuam, County Galway on 22 February 1638, aged 66, and was buried in St Mary's Cathedral, Tuam.[6][7][8]
