The Freedom of the city of Armagh has been conferred on former Church of Ireland Primate Robin Eames and his wife Lady Christine Eames.
Archbishop Robin Eames worked for peace
Peace advocate Lord Eames, 69, led the Church during the worst years of the Troubles and was a key advocate for peace. He retired last December.
The freedom ceremony, at a special meeting of the city council, has been followed by a concert.
In June, Lord Eames got one of the UK's highest honours, the Order of Merit.
He has also received a prestigious peace award, the Tipperary International Peace Award.
Lord Eames, who was ordained as a minister in 1963, studied law at Queen's University, but turned his back on a legal career in favour of the Church of Ireland.
He became Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland in 1986 and was a select preacher at Oxford University the following year.
