Coinghy started as the seaport for the sale of the ore from the mines in the Spine Mountains before the coming of Dwarvenhelm. Once Dwarenhelm started producing a much better quality ore, weapons and armour Coinighy declined. This produced a large level of resentment between the citizens of Coinighy and the Dwarfs of Dwarvenhelm. While this did not result in outright war, raids of various sorts were carried out by both sides.
The O’Malleys were instrumental in moving Coinighy’s trade into timber and farming produce. This along with the O’Malleys realising that this state of affairs with Dwarvenhelm could not continue, brokered a peace.
