The N77 road is a national secondary road in Ireland. It links the N10 national primary on the ring road south of Kilkenny, County Kilkenny to the M7 motorway at Portlaoise in County Laois.

Upgrades and Extensions[edit]

In December 2007 a 4 km stretch at the southern end of the road terminating in Kilkenny city centre was replaced by a new road forming the northeastern section of the Kilkenny ring road and terminating at the N10 national primary road. The N10 forms the southeastern section of the ring road which opened in 1983. On 28 May, 2010, a section of the single carriageway N8 road between Durrow and Portlaoise was redesignated the N77 when the final section of the M8 motorway opened to traffic.
