|Route outline (key)|
The R132 follows the former route of the N1 from Parnell Street in Dublin to the border with Northern Ireland at Carrickcarnan in County Louth, where it terminates at an end-on junction with the eastern B113.
Initially, the R132 was routed through the centre of the town, while the N52 was routed along the eastern bypass. In 2012, a statutory instrument was passed which reclassifies the eastern bypass as the R132, and renumbers the route through the town centre as the R215. However, the renumbering has not, as of 2019, taken place on the ground.
Feede - Drumad
This section of the N1 to the north of County Louth was upgraded to motorway standard (although to N1 rather than being made a motorway) without a parallel local access road being constructed. The old road was converted into a cycle and footpath and runs alongside the present N1 to the east. Further east, on the other side of the River Feede, a local road exists via Marble Bridge that other non motorway traffic can use. This has resulted in a gap in the R132, which continues north from J20 through Carrickcarnan to the Louth/Armagh border at Killeen, where the B113 continues towards Newry.
An amended OpenStreetMap trace for this route awaits uploading to the SABRE Wiki.
