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.

Picture: Commedagh and Donard from Cove
Immersed in the Mournes
by paulocon  10 Jan 2011
I completed all the Mourne 2,000 footers on Monday last by taking in Chimney Rock and Cove on a superb winter's morning. Having climbed Chimney Rock from the pretty dull path leading from Bloody Bridge, I crossed over to Cove via the Bog of Donard and the Brandy Pad.

The route offered superb walking with a heavy frost leaving the crossing of the bog a less challenging task that usual. I veered off the Brandy Pad at the large cairn below Slieve Beg and headed up Beg before crossing over to Cove. Although only a half kilometre from Beg, the climb up Cove is over very steep ground.

Cove gives great views across the Mournes with the mountains looking particularly stunning in the early morning winter sunshine. From the summit cairn, you get a real feeling of being in the middle of the Mournes. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/181/comment/6198/
