Old School New School returns to St Mel's College this July and is set to bring you even more cars.

With room for over 400 cars, 20+ trade stands and plenty of entertainment, there will be something for all car enthusiasts on July 14.

OSNS is a static car show, showing some of the rarest makes and models from all eras.

Organisers have just announced the beneficiary for this year's event.

Cian Neary is 15 years old. He is from Killashee and was diagnosed with T-Cell lymphoma in early September 2018.

He is currently undergoing treatment at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin with a view to having a bone marrow transplant there once he is deemed ready to proceed to same.

Due to his illness, Cian requires full time care and has been unable to return to school, or his much loved sporting activities. He spends a lot of time either at Mullingar Regional Hospital or in Crumlin. Funds raised will be used to support his family with ongoing expenses.

Cian is pictured above with some of the crew when he recently paid a visit to St Mel's College to check out some of the cars already entered for the show, and he even got to go for a spin in a couple of them.

“We were delighted to see him return with a massive smile on his face,” organisers said on the Facebook page.

“Everyone involved with OSNS would like to send our very best wishes to Cian and his family and hope their journey is as smooth as possible as they face a difficult road ahead. Stay strong Cian, you've got this.”
