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.

Return to Cove!
by PinkyFloyd  16 Sep 2018
Today was the second time I have visited Cove. Anyone who read my first comment will know my first visit was alone and an altogether nervous affair. Well, the return was a much better experience. Being there with others who knew the mountain meant the nerves disappeared and the path above the crags held no fear. We stopped at the top of the Cove gulley for lunch and that seemed to me a pretty precarious place for lunch but I soon settled in and just enjoyed the view.

Instead of coming over Lamagan this time we ascended via Lower Cove and on to the col between Lamagan and Cove. Cove gives amazing views of the Annalong valley and spectacular views of Beg, Donard and Commedagh. It was a perfect day and I now consider Cove a friend, though one which I will always treat with respect. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/181/comment/20067/
