man irc
    The .ircrc File:
        When ircII is executed, it checks the user's home directory  
for a .ircrc file, executing the commands in the file.  Commands in  
this file do not need  to  have  a  leading  slash
        character '/'.  This allows predefinition of aliases and other  

Maybe adding the commands you want to execute to ~/.ircrc will do what  
you want.
