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.
