    The top one looks like a jasmine, possibly Jasminum beesianum.  The bottom one is hawthorn, with Vinca major, common name periwinkle (with the blue flowers) growing through it.
    Since 2019 I've lived in east Clare, in the west of Ireland.

    Jasmine beesanium is the first one. It will strangle anything nearby. It was a foe in my garden. 
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    It wound through my climbing roses. As it came from next door, the only thing i could do was cut it at ground level and  unwind it when it wilted causing damage to me from the rose thorns and  broken rose leaves from the Jasmine. It spreads by layering so you'll have to watch out for that too.
    It seems to have disappeared now. I think the chap next door must have used weedkiller.
