In that time, her long-list of credits includes All is True, The Crown, Stan and Ollie, BBC mini-series Les Misérables, and Irish feature film Rosie, along with Three Girls, The Missing, Doctor Who and Ripper Street.

Having studied Film & Media in D.I.T Aungier Street, Úna turned her attention to editing, studying the craft for three years at the National Film and Television School, IADT. In 1999, Una brought five of her graduate films to premiere at the Cannes film festival, one of which, Secondhand, won the top prize in the Cinefondation section of the festival.

Over the past 20 years Úna has edited on a variety of projects, from documentaries to film and television drama. Her body of work contains editing credits on some of the biggest shows in television, including The Missing, Doctor Who and Ripper Street, all of which have earned Una IFTA Award nominations for ‘Best Editing Drama’, as well as BAFTA TV Craft nominations.

Her work on the highly-acclaimed drama also earned her a BAFTA TV Craft Award, Women in Film and TV Award and a RTS Craft & Design Award to add to her prestigious list of accolades.

Úna has edited several major international projects including Netflix’s hit series The Crown and Stan & Ollie, the Laurel and Hardy biopic starring Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly.
