The chapter focuses on the dramatic resurgence of Irish American nationalism in response to the Northern Irish Troubles. After examining the roots of the violent conflict in Northern Ireland and the rise of the Provisional Irish Republican Army, it turns to the emergence of US support networks, especially Noraid. After an examination of the 1981 Hunger Strike and its impact, the chapter turns to the Northern Irish Peace Process, emphasizing in particular the role of Bill Clinton in pushing this process forward.

Keywords:   Northern Irish Troubles, Irish Republican Army, Noraid, Northern Irish Peace Process, Bill Clinton
