IRC N00b. Can I get files from the IRC via my android phone?

While I'm generally computer competent/android literate, I don't know anything about the IRC. I could use some detailed help getting files from a channel.

Can this be done from an android phone?

What android client should I use?

I tried androirc, got into a channel, and did a seek. It looks like the seek bot tried to push a list file to me, but I'm not sure how to receive it.

Files over IRC get sent via DCC.

I know nothing of Android, but your client needs to support DCC and the network ports need to be open.

The bot might also have messaged you the !seek results in a query... a direct chat to your client. Depending on how your client handles queries, it may or may not be obvious that it's been sent to you.

I've no experience with AndroIRC, but I've used IRC in the past.

After a poke at their wiki, I'm not sure you can even do file transfer via AndroIRC.

It's not mentioned there or even searches for files, bots, xdcc, etc brings up nothing.

YAICC seems to support DCC commands.
