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 place in Ireland.

The east side of the southern ridge off Slieve Commedagh contains some fine cliffs. There is a rough path running along the west side of this, the Annalong valley. Going north on this you finally meet the Brandy Pad, passing the fine cliff shown here and then the spectacular foot of Slieve Beg.

To the right, the photo shows Slieve Donard on the skyline, the Annalong Buttress under it. Also see the path mentioned previously to the right and the “Lower Cove” cliff which is actually nearer Slievelamagan than Cove. According to [Bernard Davey’s Mourne 1999] “.. the base of Lower Cove (which) has a dangerous cave. Casual explorers would do well to proceed with caution if they intend investigating further, as I have heard of people getting stuck inside it.” Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/181/comment/1275/
