The marsh fritillary is widely, but patchily, distributed across Ireland. They can be found in various habitats including calcareous grassland, degraded bogs, wet heath and mires and fens. The overall status and future prospects of these habitats are poor or bad.
It is declining in Ireland due to reduction in habitat quality and habitat fragmentation. It is therefore categorised as Vulnerable in Ireland.
