The route of the A32 in red from Omagh (Co. Tyrone) to Swanlinbar (Co. Cavan).

The A32 is a route in Northern Ireland connecting Omagh (Co. Tyrone) to Swanlinbar (Co. Cavan). The road passes through Dromore in Tyrone and the Fermanagh towns of Irvinestown and Enniskillen

The A32 passes Enniskillen/St Angelo Airport near Lower Lough Erne. At the border, the A32 becomes the N87 in the Republic of Ireland. The Marble Arch Caves are situated close to the section of the road to the south of Enniskillen town near the village of Florencecourt.

Developments, such as carriageway widening and climbing lanes, are installed to the road between Omagh and Enniskillen to facilitate easier access to the new Erne Hospital near Enniskillen. This section once followed an alignment that saw the route avoid Irvinestown altogether; taking traffic straight from Dromore to Trillick, Kilskeery, and Ballinamallard, before returning to the current road at Trory (close to Enniskillen Airport).

The A32 road from Enniskillen heading towards Swanlinbar becoming the N87 in the Republic of Ireland and continues as the R202 to Dromod which connects with the N4 between Sligo and Dublin.

In Dromod there is a station on the Dublin-Sligo railway line with a two hourly train service between Dublin Connolly and Sligo.
