"úa" and "ó" can vary seemingly unconditionedly in Old Irish. In this
particular case, there is also paradigmatic pressure from the
uninflected preposition "ó".

"bú" is only the acc. pl. The nom. pl. is not attested before the
Middle Irish period. It's "baí" then, we would it expect to be "boí"
in Old Irish.
