He invented the ‘Bomba Nolan Shovel’ and made a small fortune. He misses the simpler times. Dadd runs the pub. He’s lived in the town forever and is, quite frankly, eager for the whole thing to be over and done with.Gods & Fighting Men is a dark comedy about lads stuck in their lives and doing sweet fuck all but talking about it
