The N80 road is a national secondary road in Ireland that runs southeastwards from its junction with the N52 in the town of Tullamore in County Offaly, to the N11 at Ballynahallin, just north of Enniscorthy in County Wexford, a distance of 116 km. Total length is 116 km (72 mi).



N80 through Stradbally where it is crossed by the R427

In common with most National secondary routes, the N80 is a simple two lane road without hard shoulders for much of its route. Some of the worst bends may have been removed through the years and some junctions improved, but general pavement quality is rather poor. No improvements are scheduled.

Works of note on the N80 include:

  • a bypass of Tullamore (N52) and Moate (M6) involved the designation of some 26 km of N80 to R road resulting in a reduction in its total length.
  • Mountmellick inner relief road[1] - project appears to have been abandoned.
  • Realigned section where it crosses over the M7 (Completed late 1990s).
  • Kildavin bypass (completed in the 1990s it involved passing over the village and bridging over the R724)
  • Southern terminus of the N80 at the N11 converted from a simple T-junction to a roundabout (2008).

Tullamore bypass

The N80 crosses the N78 at a staggered junction

The Tullamore bypass[2] is a new 14 km (8.7 mi) single carriageway upgrade to the N52. The route leaves the existing N52 approximately 6 km (3.7 mi) southwest of Tullamore town, intersecting with the N80 road SE of the town , crossing over the Grand Canal, before rejoining the N52 again 3 km (1.9 mi) north of the town. A spur was constructed from the northern section of the route to the Tullamore Western Relief Road forming a near complete orbital route around Tullamore. The N80 now terminates at the N52 junction on the bypass; traffic heading for Athlone now takes the N52 north to the M6 motorway at Kilbeggan.
