Doors Of Dublin

Dublin, Ireland 15-4-2010

Doors Of Dublin are colored in different colors, why is that im not really sure but i find two answers online.
A After the death of the queen (Queen Elizabeth) England ordered the citizens of Ireland (which was still under british rule) to paint all of their doors black in mourning of the queen. The irish rebelled and painted their doors bright colors, and the tradition has stuck.
B:There is also a story that the women were tired of their husbands going in the wrong doors when they were drunk, going up the wrong stairs, into the wrong bedroom and sleeping with the wrong woman so they painted the doors different colours to help them distinguish between them.
i think answer A is more  correct but i like B solution :)
