    We have no idea what IRC module you're using.

    The Google Voice code you have probably won't work once you have
enough messages stored that Google Voice returns them on multiple
pages.  You have to read all the pages.  If there's any significant
amount of traffic, the completed messages have to be moved or deleted,
or each polling cycle returns more data than the last one.

    Google Voice isn't a very good SMS gateway.  I used to use it,
but switched to Twilio (which costs, but works) two years ago.
