Any road markings or traffic light sequence to facilitate the right turn?

This is a hypothetical question. It isn't a scenario that has happened to me yet. But for argument's sake, let's say it is a bog standard crossroads junction like this one with me doing a right turn onto Old Kilmainham Rd https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-6.3076708,45m/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en-GB

If there is no yellow box then you can just sit there. Yes, you are blocking other drivers but I see nothing "illegal" with what you did.
In theory (and when you are new this is what you should do) you shouldn't have moved forward until you could complete your turn in one go.
But I have seen your scenario plenty times IRL.

You can stop in a yellow box if turning right.
In the OP scenario, they should not move forward until they can make the turn, but in reality will probably end up driving through an amber or red light.
Unless your exit is perfectly clear and attainable – such as it being feasible to turn the way you wish to – you should leave the yellow boxes in the clear for others to benefit.
