What is Ashbourne Royal Shrovetide Football?

Ashbourne Royal Shrovetide Football is a game played every Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday. Unlike a conventional football match, the game takes place over two eight-hour periods, the goals are three miles apart and there are few rules. In fact, it's nothing like a standard football match!
