Can anyone help me identify these fossils I’ve searched online but very little info to find

The long fossil would be a foot long and the big oval fossil would be size of your hand Click image for larger version - Name: 2EEE69B8-2B9A-428B-B71E-F04539B5C41C.jpeg, Views: 28, Size: 1.56 MB Click image for larger version - Name: F673E057-C622-4ADF-AC21-9A5082059231.jpeg, Views: 28, Size: 933.99 KB Click image for larger version - Name: B8375586-11C1-4FEE-9EBC-8F5E3A24E656.jpeg, Views: 27, Size: 569.34 KB Click image for larger version - Name: 91E3F4D3-B6DF-4627-A750-C68B278FD2DD.jpeg, Views: 26, Size: 361.79 KB

Hi,

The first 3 are coral, what is the location you picked it up from, this should point to what age it is. Very similar to Dibunophylum, would not like to say without more information.

Hello Aneka and welcome to the forum. I eventually found one sentence about the geology of Donegal and it mentions Lower Carboniferous, which is what I would expect from these fossils
A in photo below are as Janet says = corals,  but she forgot to mention B which are sections through Crinoids. All  the other photos are of corals as well.
