Manager Ciaron Byrne insists Dunboyne are much better than they showed in their heavy Leinster club SFC quarter-final defeat to Kilmacud Crokes.
St Peter's were impressive winners of Meath's Keegan Cup last month, but were put to the sword by a Paul Mannion-inspired Crokes at Pairc Tailteann yesterday.
"I have to say, we looked at ourselves in that dressing-room after the game and I think, to a man, we didn't turn up," Byrne lamented in the Irish Examiner.
"And that's disappointing and that's something we have to look at, and probably in the wider context of Meath football. We should have turned up today.
"We came here with high hopes. I know a lot of people thought we might have only been turning up, but we came determined to do a good job. Unfortunately, we didn't. We let ourselves down a bit today."
