The N53 heading westwards

The N53 is a national secondary road providing access between the M1 at Dundalk and the N2 at Castleblayney, and thence to Monaghan. The route is fairly straight and uneventful, with the exception of a 5.4-km stretch inside Northern Ireland through Cullaville, where the road is known as the A37, Concession Road.

The old N53 east of the M1 into Dundalk is now the R934, while the end in Castleblayney has gained a short extension over the former N2 to meet the town's bypass.
