I've a little question about transit at ZRH.
I'll fly from NCE to DUB via ZRH with LX tomorrow. Few weeks ago, I saw on the internet that we don't need any passeport to go in Ireland when we are from European Union, an ID card is adequate.
That's why I didn't check my passeport which is actually obsolete... And this morning, I saw on ZRH website that there is a passeport checking when you're in transit and you're going to a non-Schengen country ( Ireland is one of them... ).
I'm really nervous about this, so here is my question : if my ID card is adequate to go in Ireland, will I have some troubles at the ZRH passeport checking if I just can show them my ID card only ? ( I still have my old passeport, but like I said, it's obsolete so... )

Assuming that by ID card you mean one of these http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_national_identity_card there is no need to worry. For travel within the European Union (including the UK and Ireland) the national identity cards are valid as travel document. You simply show this card at passport control.
