|Route outline (key)|
The A32 is a cross-country A-road in southwest Northern Ireland.
The road originally began on the A5 in the centre of Omagh. This road now bypasses the town to the south, so the A32 has been cut back to the bypass. It starts at a set of traffic lights and runs into town for a short distance as far as another set of traffic lights, where it turns right onto its original route and almost immediately goes under the A5.
The road heads southwest across the fields and eventually reaches Dromore. Originally the road continued south from here via Trillick to reach Enniskillen. However, in recent years the road swapped routes with the B46 and so now detours west via Irvinestown where it TOTSOs left on meeting the A35. The A32 actually has two parallel routes in Irvinestown, with the signposted through route requiring two TOTSOs along a short town-centre relief road, although taking the other route via the market place adds no distance to the journey.
The A32 heads south from Irvinestown along the original southernmost section of the A35 to reach its original route at a realigned junction to the east of Enniskillen Airport. The town itself is reached a few miles further on and the A32 passes to the east of the Race Course Lough to reach the A4 at traffic lights.
There is then a multiplex west for a couple of miles through Enniskillen and across the River Erne, meeting the A46 and A509 en route. The A32 eventually regains its number by turning left as a non-primary road. It heads south, past the National Trust's estate at Florence Court, before reaching the border just north of Swanlinbar. The road ahead is the N87.
