As IRC is a significant means for me to interact with all of you, I'd like to be able to use it there.  I have submitted a configuration change request to the firewall manager, but if that doesn't go through, is there a way to make irssi use the same ports as http so it will work?

If you have control of a computer outside the network, you can run an 
ssh server on port 80 or 443 and then use port forwarding.
