  1. Steve Knightsays:

    I have just read the book written by Kirsty's mother 'Sun On The Water'. A book that I could not put down and as you read it cover to cover you can certainly tell how much Kirsty was loved by her family,friends and her fans. It really made me feel emotional just reading,and has made an impact how much Jean and her family/friends have tried to get Justice done. May I through these pages encourage you all to persevere and hope one day this case is resolved. Thanks you for sharing your outpouring love and dedication,in memory of your beautiful daughter. Thank you.

    Just been reading the book sun on the water written by Kristy's mother. (the brilliant life and tragic death of Kirsty Macoll). What a brilliant person she was and she had a beautiful voice (like an angel). Just such a waste to lose somebody in such a tragic accident. And can not believe that no body was blamed for causing her death when she was happily diving with her two young boy's. She will never be forgotten and she would have been very proud of her boy's Xx

  3. Tomas Dahlinsays:

    My favourite artist! I mourne her tragic death every time at this time of the year. All Love to her and her family from us in Sweden! ❤️

  4. Tomas Dahlinsays:

    Well spoken!

    Well spoken!

  6. Georgeysays:

    We have listened to Fairy tale of New York every Xmas in the salon and every year when it's on so many times for all the clients, I remind them about Justice for Kirsty... So many people think she was killed by a jet ski??? I then tell them the real story that the guy who was driving the speed boat is still walking free... Amazing voice and an amazing lady and she will never be forgotten...I hope one day you all have the justice Kirsty deserves. Xxx

  7. Carolesays:

    Every time fairytale of new york comes on, it reminds us of what a great voice we have lost can't believe it's 16years already, rest in peace kinsey, we miss you xx

  8. Samsays:

  9. chrissays:

    Merry Xmas beautiful..wherever you are ..we only met once but you'll always have a place in my heart

  10. SBsays:

    Remembering Kirsty today. Watched A New England on YouTube with my children, and thought again what a marvellously warm and wonderful singer (and woman) she was. RIP Kirsty.

  11. Paulsays:

    Hope justice will happen for Kirsty.

  12. Adam Johnsays:

    Fairytale of New York has always been my favourite Christmas song of all time, a couple of years ago I started reading about the song and the artists. Me, only being 11 at the time, wasn't around when it first came out but I wanted to find out more. I came across Kirsty and her tragic death. However I didn't go into great detail finding out more, now i'm 16 and Fairytale of New York came on my Christmas playlist and this year I went into more detail. The anger I have towards the attitude of the Mexicans is so surreal, it makes my blood boil. They brushed it off as if nothing happened. I understand there's not much more that can be done now, but I just wanted to say that Kirsty was a fantastic artist, and whoever the excuse for a human being was in control of the boat will get what they deserve one day.

  13. HN Andersonsays:

    I confess I don't know much of Kristy's work, but every year at Christmas time I hear one of my favorite songs, the Pogue's "Fairytale of NY". This year I read some articles about the song which led me to investigate those voices behind it. Sadly, I came upon the story of Kristy's untimely death. We can all agree it was shocking and horrific. My "mother's heart" feels for you, Jean. I pray for your peace. Those who have wronged your family will have to answer to a higher power eventually, and their money and power cannot escape that.

  14. Vanessa Bainsays:

    Kirsty was a very talented artist who was also a mum and what happened to her was very sad ...I hope you have found some peace in your life you did a great thing for her and her children with this campaign. Love to you xxx

  15. Tom Bowdensays:

    God bless you Kirsty.

  16. Keith Berrysays:

    Is there anywhere to watch or buy the documentary? BBC says it's not on their website any longer.

  17. Michael Jacobsays:

    Kirsty was such a great loss

  18. suzysunshine7says:

    I'll never forget hearing the news of Kirsty's death. It was such a chaotic Christmastime and so the only time I had free was by staying up all one night to make a last minute Christmas Cake and several batches of Mince Pies amongst lots of other things for the Freezer. I just had a really great baking session listening to Christmas Carols and songs including Fairytale of New York before I switched on Radio Four. Suddenly on the BBC News came the terrible announcement. I just slumped to the floor in shock and tears unable to quite take it in? Very few people in the public eye have ever caused such a sorrowful reaction as that in me, yet Kirsty did that night. It was a tragic and cruel death for such a lovely lady with a truly wonderful voice and fantastic sense of humour. I wish her family all she would wish them herself ... x RIP x

  19. Christopher Moransays:

    I'd like to come to the annual celebration of Kirsty's birthday this year. I was involved in the justice for Kirsty campaign which sadly we never got. Can you tell me the arrangements for this year. I'd love to be there and celebrate the life of this talented loved woman. Christopher Moran

  20. Bruce Gustafsonsays:

    Kirsty had one of the most angelic and beautiful voices that I have ever heard, or will ever hear. My prayers.

  21. carmelsays:

    Will always remember you Kirsty beautiful talented angel.

  22. louise carvillesays:

    I am so sad Kirsty is gone. She is so much part of us especially at this time if year. I think the world knows an injustice was done

  23. Kevin Caulfieldsays:

    Find a way x kevin

  24. Kevin McAuleysays:

    How weak I seem in reciting , hopefully to Kirstys friends and family, more pointedly to Kirsty who is amusts us, Thank you Kirsty Maccoll for the days, for your words, delivery, spirit and SOUL, we do miss you, you got it Bang on, words, sentiment, delivery and sentiment. From the pent house to the pavement, M's Ottis to Fairy Tale, thank you, thank you, thank you xXx

  25. Schnausays:

    Every year, at christmas time, I am reminded of the injustice done to you and your family. It saddens me that those guilty of your death have still not been held to account - and even more that the country I live in is increasingly turning into a place, like Mexico, where justice can be bought and sold by the wealthy. Have all our struggles been in vain? I can only hope that the younger generations will recognise the value of the rule of law, justice, democracy, and freedom of speech, before these sacred principles are lost to us all. Rest in peace, dear Kirsty.

  26. jacqui lovellsays:

    Thinking of you Kirsty on this day of the anniversary of your death. You gave so much joy to people in your short life, God bless to you and your family xxx

  27. Matthias Ruhlmannsays:

    I hope justice will be done for Kirsty and for her family's peace, I always think of her and even more around christmas. Sending love to you. She'll never be forgotten. xxx

  28. Graham Whitingsays:

    Let's honour her today, in every Chip Shop in New England; and, again, when the bells are ringing out for Christmas Day. Thank you for the days, those endless days, those sacred days … one day, you’ll be waiting there.

  29. Mike Andrewssays:

    15 years. Always remembered. Unique talent and human being x #justiceforkirsty

  30. Johnsays:

    Kristy was a marvelous talent. She was taken way to soon. But the love she left behind touches people even time her voice cones out of a,set of speakers or a radio.

  31. Paulo de Sousa Pintosays:

    They have been playing Fairytale of New York constantly these days. Through it, I learned about Kirsty, and it saddens me deeply to hear of the tragic event that took her so violently and much too early from this world. Your music and personality will keep on opening peoples hearts and inspiring them - for times to come... Rip

  32. david manbysays:

    Keep Kirstys mememory alive

  33. Bill Normansays:

    Sorry my earlier comment got scrambled somehow John Lennon's death was a worldwide grief for the loss of a hero. To me Kirsty's passing felt like losing a friend or family member. Obviously its 15 years on Friday and Fairytale will once again be a hit . But lets remember the best LP of the entire 80s Kite and its glorious follow ups sand say to her family that she will NEVER be forgotten

  35. Karen Whitesays:

    Hi there, I'm trying to contact a member of Kirsty's "immediate" family (ideally Louis, but the email address I have for him is no longer valid). Are you able to let me have an email address for Louis, or Jamie, or Jean? Alternatively, if I send a detailed message through this medium will you pass it on for me? Thanks in anticipation!

  36. Mark Lynchsays:

    I never forgot the shock and sadness I felt when I heard the news of the death of such a talented and beautiful singer. I will always remember the song "new England " as being one of those songs which transport me instantly back to a significant time in my youth. Kirsty was one of the best, and I will never forget her. I never had the honour of meeting her, but I will always remember her. I hope her killers are brought to justice. God bless you, Kirsty

  37. Alainsays:

    I miss you, Kirsty. I'm glad to learn that a fight for justice was put up on your behalf.

  38. Margaretsays:

    Just shed a tear whilst listening to Kirsty on the music channel always think about Kirsty and her family especially at this time of year and the total injustice. Xxxxxx

  39. Paul Turnersays:

    A sad day on what would have been Kirsty's 56th birthday. Gone, but never to be forgotten. Thank you for the wonderful musical legacy you left us.

  40. Samuel Rummersays:

    You will never know how much loss and sadness is left in the loss of Kirsty! Rest In Peace Beautiful Lady!

  41. Werner Hörasays:

    Dear Ms. MacColl, my name is Werner Höra. I am from Germany and I play guitar and sing to it. I write to you not in case of Kirsty but in case of the song "dirty old town" from her father. I have written a German text to the melody of "dirty old town". It`s about the town I live in, called Biberach in the south of Germany. I want to ask you now, whether I can make a CD with this song and make it public. I wish you still a nice week and I am looking forward to hear from you. Kind regards, Werner Höra

  42. JOHN TIERNEYsays:

    more and more corruption...keep up the struggle if you can...best wishes, john tierney and a 'fan'

    I will never forget. Missing you, Ms MacColl.

  46. C Evanssays:

    I've just been telling my son all about Kirsty and playing her music. He loves it. I'm sorry he's too young to have seen her but glad there is so much on the internet to show him.

  47. Sophie Wildesays:

    I was just watching an old edition of Top Of The Pops from 1980.it was 'Jonah Louis..Only Find me in the Kitchen at parties ' and I spotted the lovely Kirsty as a backing singer..What a gorgeous woman she was,a real strength about her that is not seen these days "pop" stars..Kirsty symbolises the female strength too that really politically inspired me in my teenage years,I'm just about to turn 48 next month and hopefully have tried to stay as true to myself as I can be.I feel we've gone backwards since the 1980's ,just glad we had musicians like Kirsty and her dad Ewan to lend weight to good political causes.So sad that she's been gone so many years,I can't believe how long it's been.Love to KM's mum and kids..rest in peace.never forgotten. ,love Sophie (Brighton UK)

  49. Tony Batleysays:

    Just come back from London today (27th April 2015) after seeing a fantastic Elvis exhibition at the O2. My partner's a big Kirsty fan and I took her photo sat on the bench in Soho Square. She was ecstatic! I later heard the actual song and it moved me to tears. RIP, you left far sooner than you should have, sing with the angels now.

  50. Kirstysays:

    Your daughter was an astonishing musician, she keeps me company on my ipod almost daily. She lives on through her wonderful songs and brilliant lyrics - I've been listening to her for as along as I can remember and always will. Kirsty Maccoll...you are a constant for us all. Sleep well...xx

  51. Ian J Halesowensays:

    The voice of an angel, you must have been so proud. So glad I had Kirsty in my life.

  52. Mair South Wale ssays:

    Just heard a record played on the radio by Kirsty! Wonderful! Such a loss to everyone! Xx

  53. James K Hsays:

    Thank you for the days you gave us Kirsty

  54. Mar Heifnersays:

    Simply put, I adored Kirsty. I am terribly sorry for her family and for the world, for losing such a bright light way too soon.

  55. Monicasays:

    I am a die hard Kirsty fan and I always will be. I think she is a true legend who will always be remembered for her kindness and wonderful voice. Such talent. I love all of her songs and albums. My favourites have to be Victims , Celestine and I can't continue to list them as there are loads I love! She was taken to soon. She will always be remembered and as a fan I will keep her alive in my heart. A legend was taken from us too soon. I hope that all of us Kirsty fans will stand together in hope and success of finding justice for Kirsty and that we make sure that the man who killed her will never forget what he did. Kirsty Anna MacColl I love you then as I love you still. Forever in our hearts. God bless and sleep well. xxxxxxxxxxx

  56. Davidsays:

    I had 'Tropical Brainstorm' on in my car yesterday, an album thought I'd bought back in 2000. I also remember seeing her with Billy Bragg in Neath in 1994, supporting the Tower Colliery miners. The nature of Kirsty's death still saddens me. We lost such a great talent and an all-round lovely person. But I will never tire of listening to her music for as long as I live.

  57. fransays:

    Her voice and songs will long be remembered but the man that killed her will not you live on kirsty

  58. Bevsays:

    kite will always be one of the best albums of all time .She was taken too soon. X

  59. Jayne Robertssays:

    Sat on a beach in Cozumel and listened to Kirsty sing 'the fairy tale of New York' on 23 December 2014. Her music lives on and for that we must be grateful. I continued to listen to her album and thought what an extraordinary talent. Her music gives me so much pleasure every time I listen to her. Love and thoughts to all her family.

  60. Neale Reynoldssays:

    Big fan of Kirsty's since picking up the pic disc single of "They Don't Know". It's hard to believe how much time has elapsed now, still think about her pretty much every day, and her songs are standing the test of time magnificently! Cheers, and have a fabulous 2015 when it comes.

  61. Glennsays:

    There is a reason God limits our days. To make each one precious. With endless time, nothing is special. With no loss or sacrifice, we can't appreciate what we have. We now appreciate how special Kirsty was. May the road rise to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face. The rain fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you Kirsty in the palm of his hand ..

  62. Miss jane lathamsays:

    Amazing and so talented , with much love, j latham xxxxx

  63. Miss jane lathamsays:

    Such a wonderful lady , listening to her xmas song brings me to tears goodnight and godbless beautiful lady and very talented xxx

  64. Melanie, David & Lydia from Cardiffsays:

    I bought my husband another CD from Kirsty for Christmas. We listened to her while opening the presents yesterday. No doubt she will end up singing to David in the car when he returns to work in 2015. Kirsty's spirit certainly lives on with us here. Thank you Kirsty for being a part of our life. If only we could turn back time… xx sending much love to family, friends and forever fans of Kirsty xx

  65. Leesays:

    New England , and fairy tail in New York , will stay with me forever, and when I here or play the song the only thing I think of is Kirsty , I did not know you but wish I had met you, Lee x

  66. Carla Cavanaghsays:

    Truth and justice exist in all our hearts. It is a worthy and often heart rendering task to fight for public recognition of these! I hope that the guilty parties can't sleep knowing they took the life of a beautiful woman, then covered it up. Kirsty's truth is known by those who knew and loved her. Her voice is loved the world over and the tragic story of her death saving her son and the injustices that followed, will be told time and time again. There is no justice that would fit what her family have suffered, but I hope the truth is circulated, and the love and support of every right minded person is felt by the family! xx

  67. Alan MacKaysays:

    Having just watched the wonderful "Fairytale of New York", my thoughts turned to Kirsty and her tragic death. Her loss to the world of music as a talented singer-songwriter must be as nothing compared to her loss as a daughter. Mexican justice is so easily bought but if karma really exists then the scales will eventually balance for Kirsty.

  68. Mell Rainesays:

    Dear Jean and all your family my heart again goes out to you all at this time of the year. I just wish you could have got justice for dear Kirsty her memory will always live on God Bless you all kindest regards MELL x

  69. Frances Spicersays:

    How terribly sad, so young, such a fantastic distinctive voice. How typical of a rich men's "justice". As a mother I lnow we never ever get over our loss. My heart goes out to her and all Kirsty's family.
