In pictures: Brazilians in Ireland


Cutting back

At Gort's Brazilian hair salon there are few customers and plenty of gossip. "It's difficult for everyone," says Simone Bueno Marques, 30, who runs the business.

Although her husband and two children live in Ireland with her, she sends 700 euros each month to support her mother and pay for a house.

"It's a little bit of a problem. Sometimes I miss Brazil, but I don't want to go back - not yet, anyway."
