[[Noraid]] is an American fund-raising organisation claiming to support the peaceful campaign for a united Ireland. Set up at the beginning of the Troubles, it was often accused by the British, Irish and US governments of being a front for the supply of military hardware to the PIRA.
This caused many in the UK to suspect that Americans were anti-British and caused some resentment of Americans by some Britons.
