In everyday language...
irony refers to when the language of what is said moves one way and the meaning is moving the other. It can be quite hard to define but easy to identify.

It is the gap between what is described and what is implied. The difference between language and meaning...

Allusion is just a reference to history, an event, or some particular form of literature.
