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.

Bleck Cra on Cove Mountain, 2008
by Bleck Cra  23 Apr 2008
Les mellieurs bons amis, Porthole, Ath-hole and Brendigo are off to the Twelve Bens sans moi. Compared with the Bens, seemingly a cocked hat is the best place to deposit most other Irish challenge walks. So I have opted not to die on the hill - at least not duck-taped to a defibrillator. Groping for shards of dignity, I planned instead a weekend rendezvous with the Mourne 7 7s. By midweek, the plan had shrivelled to 5. By Sunday and half way up Donard, that merciless small rain that seeps into your soul, sent me on a downward spiral, very nearly downward home. All it needed was a burst bootlace and the cyanide tablets were coming out. Not up to the Bens; not up to the 7s; and at the final reckoning, not much up to the rain either - and the prospect of turning those leaden footsteps into gold wasn’t even on the page. Fool, that I forgot that the Mournes and Magic are one and the same. An aimless wander eastwards off the Brandy Pad and down to the first track wider than snail-prints, teases you into a hanging, high traverse and an airy wonderland of sheer rock faces, precipitous heathery descents and terrifying gullies.You will skid and scuttle through granite screes, twist, weave and flail around, sometimes for your life, while the strange Annalong whispers far below. First, Slieve Beag presents the Devil’s Coachroad at its launch pad; next, frightening crags and plate slabs soar up into Cove Mountain, who eventually expels you bruised and battered on to her Southern flank. A langourous lollop along the Annalong lip of Cove threatens wicked drops into blackness; kiss the ragged teeth above the Coachroad and stumble out baffled back to the Pad. Pas pour tous mais certainement pour un. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/181/comment/3060/
