The Royal Black Institution has paid tribute to one of its former leaders at a special memorial service in Cookstown.

Relatives of the late Millar Farr joined members of the loyal order on Sunday to pay their respects to the past Sovereign Grand Master, who died last year.

Mr Farr led the institution for 10 years, until steeping down in June 2018 at the age of 76.

On behalf of the institution, Imperial Grand Registrar Billy Scott - a close friend of Mr Farr - reflected on the former police officer's "unfailing courtesy", "complete integrity" and "faithfulness".

"A genuinely nice man to meet, Millar treated everyone with courtesy and respect, even when they didn't really deserve it," Mr Scott told his listeners.
