It's a debate that has occupied Irish minds for hundreds of years.
What defines a culchie and a townie and who holds the right to bestow these labels on people?
What are the differences and what happens when the differences become more complicated because of societal change?
Some of us are a curious blend of the two, never knowing quite which we belong to and face mockery on both sides.
Finally, in honour of the Ploughing Championships, here is the definitive questionnaire that will determine where your cultural roots truly lie.
Feel free to print out the result and keep it with your birth cert and passport for future reference.
Remember, once you complete this quiz, there's no going back. Answer carefully.
