An Irish Brazilian (Portuguese: Irlando-brasileiro or Hiberno-brasileiro) is a Brazilian person of full, partial, or predominantly Irish ancestry, or an Irish-born person residing in Brazil. Many of Irish immigrants in Brazil had to change their last names into an easier kind of writing based in existing Portuguese names, replacing the "O'" (originally "grandson"). [1][2]
