Two very different entities: irregular galaxies are smaller than the Milky Way and ellipticals much larger.
 
The Wiki has a good account, Elliptical galaxy and Irregular galaxy.  The Magellanic Clouds are excellent examples of irregulars.  There are no ellipticals in the Local Group, and those you do see look very dull.
