Irene McGugan (born 1952) is a Scottish politician. She was a Scottish National Party Member of the Scottish Parliament for North East Scotland region from 1999 to 2003.

In the 1999 election she stood as a constituency candidate in Aberdeen South, finishing fourth.[1] However her number four position on the SNP North East Scotland list was enough to take her to Holyrood.[2] She was the SNP's deputy party spokesperson on Education and Young People from June 2001,[3] replacing John Swinney who became party leader.

She contested the seat of Dundee West in the 2003 election, where she narrowly lost to the Labour incumbent Kate Maclean.[4]
