Dooher starts at right half-forward, with Stephen O’Neill, who missed the entire league campaign with a dislocated elbow, also included in the starting 15 at full forward.
Justin McMahon has recovered from a hamstring injury to start at full-back, while Martin Swift gets a first championship start at right corner-back.
Waterford make two changes for Sunday’s Munster SFC clash against Clare from the team that lost the NFL Division 4 decider against Limerick. Eamonn Walsh replaces Niall Hennessy at left half-back, while Patrick Hurney comes into the attack for Robert Ahearne with Gary Hurney moving to full-forward. There are championship debuts for three players in corner-back Kieran Connery, midfielder Tommy Prendergast and centre-forward Conor McGrath.
Offaly manager Tom Cribbin has handed championship debuts to left corner-back Paraic Sullivan and midfielder John Coughlan for their Leinster SFC quarter-final against Meath. Star attacker Niall McNamee has been hampered by a quad injury but is declared fit to play at left corner-forward.
Antrim boss Liam Bradley has dropped full-forward Michael Magill for his team for Sunday’s Ulster SFC quarter-final against Tyrone for an alleged breach of discipline last weekend. Aodhán Gallagher comes into the team at midfield with Michael McCann moving to full-forward in place of Magill. There are two other changes to the team with Aaron Douglas replacing Andy McClean at full-back while Kevin Niblock comes in for CJ McGourty at centre-forward.
Brian Kavanagh will undergo a late fitness test on his injured ankle despite being named in the Longford team to face Louth in Sunday’s Leinster SFC opener. Paul Barden has recovered from a muscle strain to line out alongside Kavanagh in the full forward line.
Meanwhile Cork attacker Ciarán Sheehan is back in the frame for their Munster SFC semi-final against Kerry in a fortnight’s time after a scan on his injured shoulder revealed no significant damage. Sheehan only suffered a minor tear to a muscle and it is hoped that he will be back in training with the squad next week.
