These lines:

        irc.OnQueryMessage += new IrcEventHandler(OnQueryMessage);
        irc.OnError += new ErrorEventHandler(OnError);
        irc.OnRawMessage += new IrcEventHandler(OnRawMessage);

are wiring up event handlers.

They equivalent in VB should be:

        AddHandler irc.OnQueryMessage, AddressOf OnQueryMessage
        AddHandler irc.OnError, AddressOf OnError
        AddHandler irc.OnRawMessage, AddressOf OnRawMessage



Then you will also need to use "AddressOf" when you create your Thread:

    Call (New Thread(AddressOf ReadCommands)).Start
