This name only exists in English, but its origin is, nonetheless, uncertain. It has been interpreted as 'Cave Mountain'. There is a cave passing through a spur which is almost blocked, but, as pointed out in PNNI, this cave is actually on neighbouring Slievelamagan. It is more likely that the word 'cove' refers to the corrie which separates Cove Mountain from Slievelamagan.   Cove Mountain is the 187th highest place in Ireland.

Cove Mountain has a bare, rocky summit. Being remote from any access point to the Mournes, you will probably visit it as part of a longer traverse. It’s part of the ragged ridge that extends south of Slieve Commedagh, so perhaps your route to Cove will also be including Slieve Beg to the north and Slievelamagan to the south. This view, to the south west, shows the summit cairn and the tors of Slieve Binnian on the skyline. The sea is part of Carlingford Lough. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/181/comment/1274/
