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 188th highest place in Ireland.

Cove demands respect
by PinkyFloyd  7 Aug 2018
Did this today as part of a long walk of the Inner Mournes (Carrick Little, Binnian, Lamagan, Cove, Beg, Brandy Pad then back down the valley to Carrick Little).

The weather was good though I was on my own so a bit nervous as had only done Binnian before. As I ascended Cove from the col between Lamagan and Cove, I tracked right to what looked like a path that would take me round the edge of the mountain crags (and it did). However, the path petered out and I didn't much like where I was, especially as I was unfamiliar and on my own, so I had a peek at my map and just turned sharp left and tracked straight up the mountain hitting the cairn in no time. I felt LOTS better to be off that other path! Cove definitely demands respect, if in doubt, track up the mountain away from initial crags. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/181/comment/20004/
