Found this on the beach at Tramore Co Waterford Ireland, most are about 1cm wide and about 3cm long. Geology reports on the area say finds include common dome-shaped bryozoan colony, all of which date from around 470 million years ago. Have been looking through pages but the top to bottom lines I cannot find plus the heave white line in the middle. Can just make out one tube and it has lines circling it around on the outside. Any ideas much appreciated IMG_42651500.jpg

Hi and welcome to the forum.
That looks like the Carboniferous (about 330-340 my) colonial coral  Siphonodendron sp. which probably found its way there as a glacial erratic if the local geology is 450my (Ordovician).
The heavy white central line in each corallite is the axial column which is one of the characteristics of the genus.
