I have the Swiss Travel Club credit card (earlier Qualiflyer) since several years and I'm getting quite a lot of mileage points on my account. LH and AF offer the same thing in Switzerland but I don't know of Ireland or other places ...

In my opinion, the backbone of oneworld resides in Europe and the US. For the US, they have the world's largest airline, American Airlines. For Europe, they have Aer Lingus (your home-country airline), British Airways, Finnair, and Iberia. That is a major chunk of the European airlines, especially British Airways. I wouldn't be surprised if SWISS joined oneworld in the near future as well. For the rest of the world, oneworld offers you the largest Australian airline, Qantas, the best Asian airline out there, Cathay Pacific, and South America's largest carrier LanChile.
