Is it definite that this line's potential would be completely gone if the N24 is replaced by a motorway?

I am unsure of this because while road competition does of course limit and sometimes destroy potential for railway lines, the N24 traffic volumes are comparable to the N4 traffic volumes according to Transport Infrastructure Ireland's Traffic Count Data website.

The Sligo line is doing all right, despite the fact that the N4 for the most part varies between dual carriageway and a standard of single carriageway where it is still safe to drive at over 100km/h.
