This research focuses on remittances among Brazilian transnational labour migrants (both documented and undocumented) from a rural area in Ireland to their area of origin. The data comes from interviews and questionnaires undertaken in both Ireland and Brazil. The article outlines the different types of remittances, from monetary to goods in kind, and identifies the motives behind a migrant's decision to remit. The findings presented relate to the varying purposes for which remittance are used, their impacts once received in the area of origin and whether specific remitting patterns are linked to altruistic or self-interested motives
