missed not seeing you this year. Hope that you have a wonderful day
surrounded by those you love.
Hi Brian, Happy birthday and all the best wishes. Now that you have a
Turkish fan here in US, we can say the language of music is really
universal. Unfortunately I discovered your wonderful voice and music this
year but I am catching up -) Hopefully, your 40th year will also bring us
your third book. I am looking forward to it. And hopefully I will see you
in NYC or maybe in Boston for a concert soon. All the best wishes again.

Hi Brian, just wanted to wish you the very happiest birthday ever, you
deserve a great 1 2 remember after the fabulous year you have had. I hope
whatever you wish for is what you get. Forty is not so bad I first got to
see you live when I turned 40 and for my 41st you sang happy birthday to
me, you also gave me a hug and a kiss at a recording of 1 2 remember in
RTE. Let me tell you it was the best present I ever got and I'll probably
never get one as good again, thank you so much you made it 1 2 remember
for me. Brian my wish for you for your birthday is LIFE LOVE AND HAPPINESS

of love. Cinzia P.S. I'll be in the front row on November 21st at
Waterfront Hall.....I'm so happy...
Dear Brian, If you were a whiskey you would now become a very precious,
rare and expensive one. Not that you haven't been special anyway before
now but 40 means something special. I celebrated mine in February and went
to Bruges as a special treat. Hope you will celebrate the start of your
crown year in a similar beautiful place with someone or someones you love
and care about. Wishing you all the best and love from Rotterdam, Edith
Vicky Prieto, Cadiz,
Happy Birthday from Spain, Brian! I just wanted to say that you are a
great singer, but of course you already know! Your voice is marvellous. I
discovered you in the Eurovision Song Contest, and when I went to Dublin
that summer, I bought your "Homebird", because I couldn't find it here in
Spain. As I'm only 17 years old, and a student, couldn't buy all of your
discs, but I will, someday. I hope I'll be able someday to go to one of
your concerts, I'm sure they must be wonderful, I'm really moved when I
listen to your voice. I wish you a very happy birthday, and please: never
stop singing! Thank you! Love, Vicky. PS: I can't believe you're 40, you
don't even look like 30!
Fab at 40....Happy Birthday BK....Hope you have a blast celebrating.
Getting better looking with age young man! I think they call them the
"Naughty 40's".......bring it on!! Happy Birthday Brian. Love....AISLINGxxx

Congratulations Brian. 40
is a special birthday and you deserve to have an extra special day. What
a year it's been (you must pinch yourself from time to time) so many
achievements, so much success in different genres, and no doubt, so much
more still to come - personally, I can't wait for Fergal - Part 3.
Thank you for sharing your
talent and your time - May Love and Luck always shine brightly on you.
Happy Birthday - Love, Joan.
Whatever your plans for your 40th Birthday I hope the coming years are
filled with Life, Love and Happiness! Best wishes on your up and
coming Tour! Many Happy Returns BK!

Katarina A, Gothenburg, Sweden
Dear Brian, Warm wishes on your 40th birthday. Hope you'll have a
wonderful day and that all your birthday dreams come true. I had mine
about a month ago, it wasn't fun beforehand but I survived turning 40 too
;-) I "discovered" you on the Eurovision and you made me do something I
never done before, I picked up the phone and voted. Since then I managed
to find most of your CD's (except the very first one) so now I'm listening
to your amazing voice and great songs every day. After seeing the DVD,
which took my breath away, I understand it must be a fantastic experience
to see you live, I hope I get the opportunity to do that some day. You
have had a fantastic year and I hope your next 40 years will be just as
wonderful and filled with love and happiness. Happy Birthday! or in
Swedish "Grattis på födelsedagen!" Lots of love, Katarina x
It´s been some time since My
40th birthday, but it´s true...life really begin then. You make so many
people happy with your song and I wish that I could sing for You now, but
I will save You from that. There is however a song who would explain what
I feel when I hear You sing and that´s "You Light Up My Life". You really
make the world a better place with your wonderful voice. So I hope You´ll
have a fantastic 40th birthday. Lots of Love Ulla.
Happy fortieth Brian. Hope you are sharing it with all the people you want
to. Thanks for being you and giving so much of yourself. You give your
loyal legion of fans so much pleasure in every genre you apply yourself
to. There is no "Better Man!". Anne
Bregeen and Joanne, Shannon, Co. Clare.
Happy birthday Brian. Welcome to the 40's club. As the saying goes, life
does begin at 40. Not sure how much better it can get for you as you seem
to have had such a great life so far. Hope to see you on your tour either
in Galway or Tipp. Have a great day. Love and kisses from Bregeen and
Tina Hooper, Grimsby

at your feet! If I could have one new birthday wish for you it would be:
that you keep going on this road to success and at the same time manage to
stay true to yourself! Have a wonderful day, a great year ahead, and many

one who knows! Love and Best Wishes, Julia
Butler (Kilbarchan, Scotland)
birthday celebration included a girls weekend to Dublin to see you in
concert (22nd October 2004). To make it extra special you kindly signed a
birthday card for me and to my surprise & amazement you sang ''Happy
Birthday'' to me at the end of show signing. That was one birthday I'll
never, ever forget....thank you so much!
So now it's my turn to wish you a happy 40th birthday! I would sing for
you in return but alas I was not blessed with your wonderful voice & this
is suppose to make you feel special & loved so I won't put you through
it. Just know that I am thinking of you on your special day as you were
blast! Love Carol
Hope you have a very special birthday.......lots of love. Anne-Clare

hope you have a wonderful day and that you have a big celebration
planned. I am a firm believer in the theory that if you give kindness and
all that is good about yourself to people you will get it back a hundred

fans are extremely grateful. Thanks Brian, hope to see you back in
England soon, oh and Happy Birthday! love Clare from Cheshire X

Brian, Best wishes for a fantastic 40th birthday from all who have shared
in your artistic journey. It should be us thanking you (again) for the
many years of enjoyment you have provided to us all. I will raise a glass
to you on your special day. May all that comes to you bring you joy
and happiness - and don't worry, 40 isn't really that sore, it just stings
a bit occasionally! Love, best wishes and here's to many
Happy birthday Brian! I hope your day and your 40th year are the best
ever! You make so many people happy with your beautiful heart and your
wonderful music! You deserve all the adulation and adoration that your
songs and stories inspire! Luv and best wishes Kelly.
Cameron and Audrey Marshall, Scotland
Love and light to you on your special day. May the muses sing your
praises, as you deserve the best. You are such a sweet person with gifts
we are lucky to share. I am honoured to be able to listen to your
voice. Since asking about you in record shops in Glasgow in the early
90s after you toured with Fairground Attraction, and being looked at with
quizzical eyes asking "Who is that?", I am pleased now that is no longer
the case and the public are now able to appreciate your music on a wider
scale. The boy hasn't gone from those days, just the man has emerged
bringing maturity and skill to the raw talent I saw all those years ago.
May you keep on growing Brian. All
l our love
Brian, wanted to say a Very HAPPY 40th BIRTHDAY to a very special fella. I
hope you have 1 to remember! As always a BIG thank you for your music and
for just being such a
genuine guy. There is no Better Man!
