I found a really good introduction to irony: What is Irony in Writing? The post is a quick read and gives a good insight into irony.

I like this very simple definition:

Verbal irony is when what’s said and what’s clearly meant are at odds, subverting expectation.

The post describes other forms of irony. Worth a read!
