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.

A nice easy walk from Carricklittle car park, on old miners tracks the whole way up to lower cove, then up towards the col between Cove and Lamaggan. The lake in lower cove has almost disappeared into the reeds. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/181/comment/676/
