There are two different bonn words, identical in gender and declensions; “tyre” is among the meanings of the first bonn, and “medal” is among the meanings of the second bonn.

(In the old orthography, the first bonn had a plural declension of bonnaidhe, and the second bonn had a plural declension of buinn. Now they both have boinn as their plural.)
