DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) – A Centre College coach and student athlete are recovering after falling from a cliff in Ireland.

Centre College President John Roush sent an email Thursday to students and staff confirming that a student athlete and coach were injured in Ireland, but didn’t release their names.

The Centre College football team traveled to Northern Ireland to play against the Belfast Trojans on May 27.

Roush says many players and coaches stayed in Ireland afterward to travel.
