I'm in for keeping an IRC Channel.
I'm using an XMPP server which provides an IRC Gateway.
So I'm able to connect to IRC channels with any XMPP client 
(https://dino.im/ actually).
I tried Matrix/element/fractal for a while but I prefer this 
It has the double benefit of beeing fast and lightweight which is 
of great interest when you have a slooooooow Internet connection 
or running on batteries.
