An IrishCentral reader, Donna Barrington, sent us through some hilarious shots of her hardworking son's hard shoes. Her son, Owen, is currently touring with the "Riverdance" and lead dancer in the new PBS special "Beyond Celtic". As you can see from his shoes (left) he's hard at work.

His mother took a photo of his shoes before and after his his homemade "repair" job. She commented "It’s a great testimony to the wonders of gaffer tape."
