LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Kentucky college athlete and his coach are recovering after falling off a 700-foot cliff in Ireland.

The Centre College football team was in Ireland over the weekend for a exhibition game. Some members of the team stayed to explore the country after the game.

A member of the coaching staff and a student fell off the Cliffs of Moher near Galway on Wednesday. Irish media reports they were trying to make their way down a treacherous goat track when they fell.

An Irish Coast Guard helicopter airlifted them to safety.

The Centre College president says both men are now on the mend.
