Heading away from the Red Cow Interchange on Naas Road.

The R110 forms an important route through Dublin, and out to the west. In the 1960s it was envisaged that it would soon be upgraded to dual carriageway throughout, showing just how important it was considered to be.

It begins on the R138 at St Stephen's Green, and heads westwards. The dual carriageway here reveals that we are on the line of the Inner Tangent, an inner ring road that was first proposed by the Corporation in the late 1960s. This section was considered a "quick win" as most of the land was already vacant.

At Patrick Street, a flyover was proposed in 1973. The current layout was a temporary arrangement. To facilitate both projects, the whole area was demolished. This junction was once known as the "The Four Corners of Hell" because of the badly-reputed pubs on each corner, but those are all now gone.

The dual carriageway was supposed to continue along The Coombe. After much local outrage, a bypass was provided. At Pimlico the original ring road would have turned off, but the dual carriagway would have continued.

At Dolphin's Barn there is a brief return to dual carriageway as the R110 crosses Camac Bridge.

After running through Crumlin and Walkinstown on the Long Mile Road, the area becomes more industrial. It meets the Naas Road at a large gyratory, where it used to give way to the N7, but now the R110 continues along the dual carriageway to the Red Cow Interchange.
