Kilkenny • Limerick • Tipperary
The N24 is the main road from Waterford to Limerick, and by extension, one of the key routes from Rosslare Europort to the West Coast.
It starts on the N9 / M9 junction just past the N25 Waterford Bypass, and heads northwest along the north bank of the River Suir up to Carrick on Suir, where it passes through the centre of the town. Out the other side, it meets the N76, which has taken the direct cross-country route from Kilkenny into Clonmel, which it bypasses to the north.
The N24 then leaves the Suir Valley behind and heads further inland up to Cahir. There's a single carriageway bypass of the town up to M8 J10, followed by a confusing arrangement where the rest of the bypass double backs and passes underneath itself, shadowing the M8 up to the next roundabout, where it rejoins the old road coming in from the town centre.
Beyond this, the N24 winds its way around valleys up to Tipperary, meeting the N74 just before the town centre. The road then heads northwest and becomes progressively straighter towards Limerick. It currently ends on the M7 at J29.
