I wonder if someone could clarify this for me

His anger and irritation have or has affected me.

Thanks Richard

if you are considering the anger and irritation to be two separate things, then, clearly you would use 'have'. If they are one thing, then you could explicitly join them e.g. His angry and irritated behaviour/mood/manner has affected me.
