Here is my walk through for setting up irssi these are my preferences such as scripts, themes etc. You will want to create your own setup, however the majority of steps here will work for you with just some name changes as required. I will assume you have installed irssi already all of the instructions below should be done as a  *normal user* not root. I will also assume you have registered your ‘nick’ although this is not required unless you wish to use private messages and other OP options.

$ irssi

Setup your preferences

/set nick your_nick

/set real_name Your Name

/network add -nick your_nick Freenode

/server add -auto -network Freenode irc.freenode.net

/channel add -auto #tdtrs Freenode

/network add -autosendcmd /msg nickserv identify yourpassword;wait 2000″ Freenode

You might like to change the theme of irssi, if not skip to “Now make a couple of folders”

$ cd ~/.irssi

$ wget https://www.irssi.org/themefiles/evolution.theme

/set theme

evolution.theme

Now make a couple of folders in /home/yourfoldername/.irssi/

$ mkdir ~/.irssi/scripts

$ mkdir ~/.irssi/scripts/autorun

You might like to download some scripts

$ cd ~/.irssi/scripts/autorun

$ wget https://anti.teamidiot.de/static/nei/*/Code/Irssi/adv_windowlist.pl

$ wget https://scripts.irssi.org/scripts/autorealname.pl

$ wget https://scripts.irssi.org/scripts/scriptassist.pl

$ wget https://scripts.irssi.org/scripts/spellcheck.pl

Lets load our scripts

/script load autorun/adv_windowlist.pl

/script load autorun/autorealname.pl

/script load autorun/scriptsassist.pl

/script load autorun/aspeller.pl

Now you are ready to connect.

/connect Freenode

Next time you start irssi it will automatically connect to Freenode and the #tdtrs channel (Or the channel of your choice)
