The Jesuits have been in contact over many years with others who were abused by Marmion while they were young students.
They have detailed sexual abuse, as well as physical and emotional bullying by him.
“We believe that the secrecy imposed by Joseph Marmion may still be preventing some victims and survivors from accessing help and support,” said Fr Moloney.
“We are acutely aware of the pain and distress that many have had to hold and continue to hold, years after the original experience.
“This pain is held by those who were direct victims of harm and abuse, by their families and also by other students who were witnesses to this abuse and felt powerless and unable to do anything about it.
“It is a matter of profound regret to me personally and to the Society of Jesus that children were abused whilst in our care. We are truly sorry. Words are never enough.”
Fr Marmion was removed from the Belvedere staff in 1978 after the school was contacted by a number of concerned parents the previous year.

He then spent a year on sabbatical in Paris with the Jesuit Community Saint François Xavier before bring assigned to the Gardiner Street Jesuit Community.
In 1990 he was appointed Chaplain to St. Vincent’s Private Hospital.
“We recognise that these subsequent appointments should not have been made,” said Fr Moloney.
Marmion also taught in Crescent College Limerick and Clongowes Wood College.
Fr. Moloney added: “We have in the past apologised and invited victims and survivors of abuse by members of the Society to come forward and to seek help. We do so again today.
“These efforts must always be continuous. We hope to explore with you the responses and supports that would be most useful at this time. I would like pay tribute to the man abused by Joseph Marmion who asked us take this course of action. His request, made solely out of concern for others has been an example to us all.”
All information regarding abuse is shared with An Garda Siochána, Tusla and other relevant authorities.
Marmion abused boys for decades – physical abuse, sexual abuse and rape.
The Jesuits were told about him in 1977 – 43 years ago and are only making it public now!
When he was outed in Belvedere in 1977 he was allowed to continue teaching there for a further academic year.
Then he was appointed to a Jesuit parish in Dublin.
After that, he was appointed as a public hospital chaplain.
He died without answering for his crimes.
Presumably, he is buried in the Jesuit plot in Glasnevin Dublin?
When I was dealing with the Jesuit provincial, Maloney over Paul Prior, he was as useless as tits on a bull.
Never go to a bishop, religious superior or anyone in the church about abuse.
