    Sounds like the link you're clicking has been spelled incorrectly.

    pr00fX
    the link format is irc://server/channel
    example: irc://irc.efnet.org/ntfs

    Well, what IRC client are you using ?

    If its mIRC, then on the newer versions the irc:// links are disabled by default and need to be re-enabled via :
    File > Options > IRC > Catcher > Enable Support for Chat links.
