When he was coming near Limerick, he sat down and took a smoke. When he reached the Bridge, he saw a crowd of wise men waiting to see who would be the first at the Bridge. The first man that cam was Sean na Scuab. The men told him to throw away the brooms that he would be Mayor of Limerick. 'I will bring one broom', said Sean. 'All right' said the men. He became Mayor of Limerick and when he came home he got married.
