Anybody able to help with this

John died in 1884 in Whitby Union workhouse, softening of the brain, exhaustion.
His sister in law Mary (wife of Brother Cornelius was marked as informant).

How did the brothers get from Ireland to Whitby, surely there must be a record somewhere?
Both were born in Limerick fathers name John.

They were moving within one jurisdiction so no record of travel was required and it was not at all unusual.
People usually moved for work, sometimes permanently sometime for a few months at a time.

Hi I live in a farming area in Limerick where the Hayes family farms/ed for several generations. Their home was a post office also until the postmistress (Hayes) retired a few years ago. The Village of Ballysteen has listed online free to see, the cemetery gravestones and the relevant inscriptions. May be worth looking it up?
