Broderick and Fitzgerald

Would anyone know of John Broderick b. abt 1843 from Ireland and who married Johanna Fitzgerald b. abt 1861 from Cork, Ireland. They eloped to the NE of England and married in 1878? John's father was Richard and Johanna's William. We're stuck! The birth years are flexible as they'd given varied ages and birth years on various documents. Any help would be appreicated.
