Laurence Raul (died 28 November 1945) was an Irish republican politician.

Raul joined Sinn Féin in 1916, and soon became a prominent figure in Dublin, one of the first Sinn Féin members elected to Dublin City Council. He took the anti-treaty side during the Irish Civil War.[1] By 1922, he was Chairman of the council's Electric Lighting Committee, when he was arrested and interned.[2]

In the 1930s, Raul elected as the secretary of Sinn Féin, then served as one of its Vice-Presidents from late 1933 until 1937.[3]
