Henry Aloysius McDevitt (1904 – 4 January 1966) was an Irish Fianna Fáil politician and barrister. He was elected, at his second attempt, to Dáil Éireann as a Teachta Dála (TD) for the Donegal East constituency at the 1938 general election.[1] He did not contest the 1943 general election.[2]

McDevitt's grandson is Mark Reckless, former MP for Rochester and Strood in the UK Parliament (2010–2015),[3] who now is an Assembly Member for South Wales elected in 2016.[4]
