Protestant loyal orders members have met the head of the Catholic Church in Ireland for the first time.
The meeting was attended by Orange Order Grand Master Robert Saulters
Senior representatives of the Orange Order and Royal Black Institution met Archbishop Sean Brady in Armagh.
During the talks, the loyal order members repeated their call for the abolition of the Parades Commission, which rules on marches.
Billy Logan, sovereign grandmaster of the Royal Black Institution, said the meeting was very useful.
"We are open to dialogue with people of good will, of course we reserve the right to determine who we believe are people of good will," he said.
"Archbishop Brady is a man of very great integrity and indeed exceedingly good will."
The meeting was attended by Orange Order Grand Master Robert Saulters and secretary Drew Nelson, Mr Logan and the Reverend Tom Greer of the Royal Black Institution.
George Dawson and Mervyn Storey from the Independent Orange Institution also attended.
