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 summit in Ireland.

My wife and I Climbed Cove Mtn via Slieve Beg for the first time Sunday 25/03/07. Used the secure carpark at Meelmore Lodge walked around the base of Meelmore then across to the Trassey Track and onwards to the Hares Gap. Following the Brandy Pad around towards the shoulder between Commedagh and Beg and then took a short walk to the summit. When I got to the summit of Beg we stopped for a cup of tea and a bite to eat. The view from the summit of this small mountain makes it worth climbing, especially back towards Bearnagh and with a goord perspective of Donard and Commedagh. After lunch we had a close encounter with the Devils Coach road just looking down towards the valley and the sheer steepness of the scree slope is enough to raise the pulse . We contuined our walk to with a steep cliimb to the summit of Cove the view here are even better taking in LAMAGAM,THE BINNIANS ,BEN CROM,MEELBEG & MEELMORE to name a few. Time was running short so we retraced our steps back the way we came to Meelmore Lodge an enjoyable walk on a mild sunny day. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/181/comment/2652/
