Úna O'Hagan (born 1962) is an Irish journalist and newsreader, best known for co-presenting RTÉ's Six One News between 1997 and 2005.[1]

On 19 July 2012, she was involved in an on-air mix-up when she read out the main Six One News headline (which was Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore's revelation that he had first heard of Health Service Executive chief Cathal Magee's resignation in the media). John Finnerty then repeated this over completely unconnected video footage. Later, during the commercial break at around 6.20pm, a black screen came and lasted 30 seconds. RTÉ described it as "a major technical malfunction".[2]
