Doirani (Greek: Δοϊράνη) is a former municipality in the Kilkis regional unit, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Kilkis, of which it is a municipal unit.[1] It is situated on the shores of Dojran Lake, which marks the border between Greece and the FYROM (Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia). It had a population of 2,208 according to the 2001 census. It is the Greek part of the former municipality of Doyuran, which was divided in 1913 by the new borders created between Greece and what was then Serbia. The part at the other side of the border is called Dojran. The name comes from the ancient name Doviros.

Doirani was the site of much inter-ethnic fighting during the Macedonian Struggle in the early 20th century. Konstantinos Papagiannakis from Doirani was the most prominent Greek Macedonian Fighter in the area.[2]
