IIRC = If I Recall Correctly. Also see, AFAIR = As Far as I Recall.

Used to soften what might otherwise be seen as an absolute authoritative statement.

Given that all* absolute statements are incorrect, it's often used.

Sometimes you'll get a lot of hits, but it's usually easy to figure out which pertains.

A quick Google search will usually find what your after as well.
