M-x irc failing to timeout, freezing Emacs, when IRC blocked by firewall

In some network environments, IRC is blocked (e.g., WiFi hotspot requires
HTTP authentication before allowing non-HTTP traffic). In such an
environment, when I try to M-x irc to get onto Freenode, Emacs freezes up,
requiring me to kill the emacs process.

My .emacs:

https://github.com/mcandre/dotfiles/blob/master/.emacs

Is there a hook or other configuration I can write in my .emacs to protect
against this freezing, e.g., by adding a timeout?

$ specs emacs brew os

Specs:


specs 0.8
