Permit Required when leaving?

Hi,
On Thursday I was asked for my permit as well as a passport on an outbound trip to Ireland, luckily I had it with me but thought this was somewhat unusual. Is this unusual?
Thanks

What is unusual ? Ireland is not in Schengen Zone. And even when traveling inside you must have your passport with you, not only permit card.

Guess what is maximum distance from home in Belgium that you can be without an ID

What is unusual is to be asked to show your permit. In eight years here, I was asked once to show my permit. The passport is usually sufficient.
