No discord at DUP/ Catholic Church meeting.

The DUP leader Rev Ian Paisley and all Ireland Catholic primate Archbishop Sean Brady have held a first historic encounter at Stormont.

It was the first time the DUP leader agreed to such talks and they came within two days of intensive discussions on devolution and power sharing involving the Taoiseach, British Prime Minister and Northern party leaders who will meet in Scotland.

Today's talks discussed devolution and the need to support the forces of law and order according to Dr Paisley who described the meeting as 'a good and useful encounter'

According to Dr Brady the meeting had been 'helpful and constructive' and both sides had agreed on the importance of a stable devolved administration in the North.

Archbishop Brady added there was a need to support law and order in all sections of the community.
