A irc chat should be available to anyone that has a 'net connection from your router.
The irc is a software connection that any PC could use, whilst on the 'net.

I don't understand the question. You have an irc server that can only be accessed fro your LAN but you want it to be accessed from the internet?

you would have to forward the irc ports from your router to the irc server
