1960’s

The Junior Championship was won the following year, 1961, Geraldines being the club’s opponents on final day, with Ollie Geraghty receiving the Christy Bellew Cup as Captain. A unique treble was denied Mattock in 1962 when the  team reached the Senior Championship Final only to be beaten at Ardee by the great Newtown Blues team of that era.
Further success eluded the club for the rest of the Sixties but a Minor Championship Final appearance against Cooley Kickhams in 1968 provided the nucleus of a side which from 1969 to 1979, contested two Senior Championship Finals against Cooley Kickhams in 1973 and 1976, a Cardinal O’Donnell Cup decider against Newtown Blues in 1969 and three Old Gaels Cup finals with Cooley Kickhams in 1969, 1972 & 1974, with Mattock losing all six finals.
