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.

Short Summary created by jackill  3 Sep 2011
Park at Carrick Little carpark at J345 219 A, room for 10-15 cars. Note the carpark fills quickly on weekends but it is possible to park on the roadside nearby.
Walk up the farm track next the carpark over a stile to open hillside. Follow a rough track beside a wall then forest then open ground on a very rough track. Branch north as you approach Lamagan and pass Percy Bysshe still on a track which eventually starts to zig-zag towards the col between Lamagan and Cove. From the col take the obvious track up and around the front of Cove which finally leads to the summit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/181/comment/4941/
