You might want to run though a bit of how the IRC protocol works.

Let's run through a quick IRC-like system.

You connect.

You want to log in, so you send:
SEND: NICK frob
You get back: OK


You want to join a chat room named #foo:
SEND: JOIN #foo
You get back: RPL_TOPIC #foo This is the topic of Channel #foo

You also want to join a chat room named #bar:
SEND: JOIN #bar
You get back: RPL_TOPIC #bar This is the topic for Channel #bar

Suddenly you get a message:
:#bar RobotAtBar Welcome to channel #bar! Visit our web site for the rules.
That tells you which channel it is from, which user it is from, and the message to display.

Now you want to send a message to channel #foo
Send: #foo Hi everybody!
to which you may get this response: #foo frob Hi everybody!


And so on.
