A vibrant and growing community, Ashbourne was the scene of a notable engagement in 1916 in which British forces finally surrendered to the volunteers led by Thomas Ashe. A memorial by Peter Grant commerates this engagement. 2km south is an 1890 obelisk with interesting panels, to the memory of Charles Brindley of Stafford, for thirtyfive years huntsman of the Ward Hounds. It is from Ashbourne that the Gibson barons take their title.
