This indeed enables me to auto-reconnect like this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defvar sds-rcirc-sentinel-last (current-time) "last reconnect attempt time")
(defun sds-rcirc-sentinel (process sentinel)
  (let* ((now (current-time))
         (delay (float-time (time-subtract (current-time)
    (message "%s sds-rcirc-sentinel: %s %s %s (last: %s, %s ago)"
             (format-time-string "%F %R") process
             (process-status process) sentinel
             (format-time-string "%F %R" sds-rcirc-sentinel-last)
             (sds-difftime-to-string delay))
    (when (and (string= sentinel "deleted")
               (< 60 delay)) ; do not try to reconnect more than once a minute
      (setq sds-rcirc-sentinel-last now)
      (rcirc-cmd-reconnect nil))))
(add-hook 'rcirc-sentinel-functions 'sds-rcirc-sentinel)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

However, I would much prefer to enable auto-reconnect by a simple

(custom-set-variables '(rcirc-reconnect-interval 60))

where rcirc-reconnect-interval = 0 means the current behavior (no

Do you mind if I commit something based on the above or would you like
to implement it yourself?

Thanks a lot for your help!
