The Royal Black Institution has a new Sovereign Grand Master, thanks to a vote taken during a meeting of the loyal order's ruling body at the weekend.

Church of Ireland minister Rev William Anderson from Loughgall was voted into office, replacing Millar Farr who last month declared that he would step down from the role, having served in post for a decade.

The bi-annual meeting of the organisation’s Grand Council took place on Saturday at the Union hall in Newbliss, Co Monaghan, and was the first time the institution has selected its new leader at a meeting held in the Republic of Ireland.
