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.

What an interesting mountain! Park at the Carrick Little car park, and follow the track to where you meet a stream on the edge of the Annalong Wood. From here, follow the track which takes you to the foot of Cove. The climb to the summit is relatively easy, but be sure to check out the cave on your way up! The photo shows me when I was about 8, with friends half way up Cove. To the left of the photo you can see the cave. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/181/comment/2634/
