The Tom Clarke Bridge Droichead Thomáis Uí Chléirigh (more generally known as the East-Link Bridge Droichead an Nascbhóthair Thoir) in Dublin is the easternmost road crossing of the River Liffey. Dating from 1984, it is a tolled bascule lifting bridge, owned and by Dublin City Council and privately operated by NTR plc. Operational control of the bridge reverted to the city council on 31 December 2015. In 2016, the bridge was officially renamed the Tom Clarke Bridge.

The bridge was built privately after the failure of the Liffey Crossing project.
