There are a few quirks about Ashbourne people... here's how you know you are a typical Ashbourne person:

1) You know exactly what Shrovetide means and you are counting down the days until it comes around again. Oh, and you have a completely different idea about hugging!

2) You've plunged off a certain bridge on New Year's Day...and lived to tell the tale!

3) You still miss the chimney at Nestlé factory.

6) You feel slightly unnerved if you manage to walk through town without seeing anyone you know.

7) You have a favourite chip shop - and you stick to it religiously.

8) You look forward to the Highland Gathering each year and are never fazed by men in kilts.
