Messor Barbarus in Ireland?

Hi everyone!
Does anybody know if Messor Barbarus exist in Ireland. I'm almost sure they're in the UK and we have pretty similar climates? If not does anyone know of any polymorphic species of ant here as this is what I'm really looking for.

Note that antmaps is not complete nor necessarily correct. I know many ant keepers like it, but I wouldn't use it to determine if your area has a specific species.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.
