Looks to be a fossil coral. I find similar ones in the Devonian:

I would go with bryozoan, something close to Favositella.

Is it dome shaped?

It appears to be a stromatoporoid: Labechia rotunda

 

figures from:

 

Johnston, M.S. 1915

On Labechia rotunda, a new species of stromatoporoid, from the Wenlock Limestone of Shropshire.

Geological Magazine, 2(10):433-434

I agree to say it is a sponge.

We've been down this road before. Something tells me there is yet another possibility, but it doesn't come to mind right now.

I think it's too radial.

I think it might have been chaetetid, but I've never even seen one of them in hand.
