    How would one go about posting an IRC link?

    by which I mean irc://irc.ircserver.com/channel <-- except clickable

    The BBCode interpreter does all sorts of strange things. For example

    1. Linked text

    Code: [url="irc://irc.ircserver.com/channel"]#channel@irc.ircserver.com[/url]

    Result: #channel@ircserver.com

    2. URL text left to the system to interpret as a URL

    Code: irc://ircserver.com/channel

    Result: irc://ircserver.com/channel

    3. URL text explicitly linked

    Code: [url]irc://irc.ircserver.com/channel[/url]

    Result: irc://irc.ircserver.com/channel

    We only allow links to specific protocols (http and https really). You could need to modify the code to change this.
