Frank Sherwin Bridge carries the R148 across the River Liffey in Dublin between Victoria Quay / St John's Road West, by Heuston Station. It is named after Dublin politician, Frank Sherwin, who died in 1981.

The bridge opened in 1982 to relieve Seán Heuston Bridge, which is positioned immediately to the west and had weight restrictions across it. It also allowed Dublin to prepare for the diversion to the N4 from the north side of Heuston to the south side, which took effect in 1987.

Frank Sherwin Bridge operates northbound only, as a key part of the one-way system around The Quays. Its wide traffic lanes have been criticised as a barrier to pedestrians.
