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.

And hopefully I will see you in NYC or maybe in Boston for a concert soon. All the best wishes again. Love S Yigit

Echo - (For Brian, on his 40th birthday, 10/12/06)

You explain with music
That we would
Not understand
If you were
We echo
And burn
In the heat
And are glad of it
We sleep
Asking for a dream
Of song
To illuminate the
We hunger
And you give us
The portion
We need
We listen
While you turn
Life into music
And allow us
To sing your story
By your side

Happy Birthday! With love, Lynn

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 in bucket fulls. See you in Monasterevin, I cant wait till then, love always Joaniexx

I wish a marvellous b'day to you and to all ones you love... You're really are a beautiful person... please never change, stay so as you all we see...a deeply hearted and an "extra"-ordinary man...!

Thanks a lot for giving us your great music, your such beautiful lyrics ...a big gift for all of us who loves you...I listen to it every day since I discovered enormous pleasure for body and soul... You inspire me to follow my dreams and my heart.... Happy birthday my special friend, and as we say in Italy.... "BUON COMPLEANNO"! Have a wonderful day! Lots of love. Cinzia  P.S. I'll be in the front row on November 21st at Waterfront Hall.....I'm so happy...

Edith, Holland
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 xxx

Vicky Prieto, Cadiz, Spain
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!

Aisling Kiernan, Dublin
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.

Pete, Derby
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!

Hi Brian, Happy 40th - have a fantastic day.  Hit my 40th last year - really scared at the prospect - but it's not so bad!  Thank you for giving us so much pleasure with your music and your voice.  Looking forward to seeing you in Belfast next month - my first ever visit to Northern Ireland.

Thomas Bryant, Macclesfield

Happy birthday Brian I cant believe your forty!!!

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

Ulla, Sweden
Dear Brian
It´s been some time since My 40th birthday, but it´s 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.

Anne, Leeds
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 Joanne

Tina Hooper, Grimsby

A Birthday Thought to a wonderful person who brings so much pleasure to so many people:-

The threads of your life
and it's finely woven pattern
Reveals its designs
To life's directions
Take one picture at a time
And you will be happy
I hope what comes your way
Is all that you deserve

There's something about you
A look in your eyes
Now and forever you will be
Someone who "Captured My Heart"
Happy Birthday. Love Always Tina x x x

Hi Brian!  The end of an incredible birthday year and you have the world 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 thanks for the pleasure you've given so many people around the world!  And incidentally Brian, life really does begin at 40 - please believe one who knows!  Love and Best Wishes, Julia

Carol Butler (Kilbarchan, Scotland)
Hi Brian,
My 40th 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 on mine. 
Have a blast! Love Carol

Anne-Clare, Age 7, Glasgow
Hope you have a very special birthday.......lots of love. Anne-Clare

I 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 fold, your beautiful voice, your books and your time for which all your fans are extremely grateful.  Thanks Brian, hope to see you back in England soon, oh and Happy Birthday!  love Clare from Cheshire X

Ross "Rosko" Mitchell, Forfar, Angus, Scotland
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 more..........

Kelly Hynes
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 from Scotland.

Tracey Prideaux
Hi 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
