The first is very common - I see it all around, with its feet in water in wetlands and on lake edges.
The second is exotic, I presume, as I saw it with its beautiful white flowers in Ashford Castle gardens yesterday.
The third, huge tree, looks as if it has another tree growing inside it, trying to get out ...
Apologies for poor quality photos.
Many thanks for your help.

The flowering one is a magnolia....no idea about the others, although alders love wet ground, so could that be the first one ?

The huge one........juniper trees of Coole park........ look familiar?



The one with its feet in water in wetlands and on lake edges..... well have a look at the native willows and native alder.
Then let me know what you think.

Magnolia looks about right for the exotic one.
Magnolia x soulangeana possibly.

Thanks James.
I'll revert on the willow / alder when I get to see one with leaves on.
Juniper ?? I thought Juniper was a small shrub like tree growing to barely 1 or 2 m !
What I saw is indeed what's in your Coole Park pic, but they're 25 m + high.
