Wilfort Cottage was in fact just inside Co.Dublin.
It was in Oldconnaught townland in Oldconnaught par, Co.Dublin (just across county border from Bray, Co.Wicklow).
Stained glass window to the memory of Robert Rahilly (died 1903).
Just inside the front door in the porch of the RC church in Ballylongford.
Inscription: "Leigigh dor na leinbh beaga teacht chúgham. I gcuimhneamh ar M.S. Roibeárd Ua Rathaille, 1903."
Translation: "Suffer the little children to come unto me. In memory of Michael Joseph Robert Rahilly, 1903."

It shows a child (i.e. Robert) meeting Jesus as The Good Shepherd.

I have spent a great deal of time and money on this research. Research involves travel and many expenses.
Some research "things to do" are not done for years, because I do not have the money to do them.
