A service of thanksgiving has been held for Rev Brian Kennaway, a former prominent member of the Orange Order and the Parades Commission.

The former minister of Crumlin Presbyterian Church died peacefully in hospital on Monday.

He was an outspoken member of the Order and was once considered its most authoritative internal critic, calling out the institution over its stance on violence and association with paramilitaries. He left the organisation some years before his passing.

The service was held in First Donegore Presbyterian Church in Ballyclare yesterday.

He is survived by his wife Elizabeth, sons Ian, Mark and David, and wider family circle.
