Route

The A34 links the A4 near Enniskillen to the border near Clones.

Towards Clones

The road starts on the A4 at both ends of the Maguiresbridge bypass. The roads head through town on the pre-bypass A4 and eventually meet. The section to/from the west has priority at the junction even though the other section is preferred as this avoids the village centre.

The road heads south into Lisnaskea and then on to Newtownbutler. Here the road turns left at a mini-roundabout and heads east towards Clones. The road ends at the border before reaching the town and becomes the R183. Interestingly, the A34 is signposted from the N54 in the centre of Clones.

History

Originally forming part of the Northern Irish section of the T35 Dublin - Donegal road, the A34 ran from the detached section of A3 at Wattlesbridge to the A4 at Tamlaght, to the east of Enniskillen. It has since been diverted at both ends:

  • North of Lisnaskea over the A39, being a faster route than the corner cutting, but winding, original route which is now the B514.
  • South of Newtownbutler over the A33 as the A509 now deals with Enniskillen to Belturbet and Cavan traffic, diverting the route to serve Clones instead. The old route is now the B533.
