I am new to fossil hunting and am not finding much in Dublin, Ireland. But I found these on a beach in Port Marnock.

Welcome to the forum. The first one is a colonial coral, probably Siphonodendron sp.  and the second is a cross section through a brachiopod shell surrounded by a scatter of smaller brachiopods and crinoid fragments. Both are Lower Carboniferous.

If you're in the Dublin area try Malahide beach - the lettle stretch immediately before the town approaching from the Portmarnock direction.  You can pick up loose carboniferous fossils like corals, bryozoans and crinoids.
