The R380 in County Galway is a link connecting the N65 at Loughrea (and junction 16 of the M6 north of that town) to the M18 at Gort. On 27 September 2017, upon completion of the M18 to the M6, providing a faster motorway route, the road was downgraded from its former status as the N66 and given its present regional classification.
