James Bellamy (64) told gardai the drugs were herbal "Chinese Viagra", Dublin Circuit Criminal Court heard.

His company Harmony Products, which is in liquidation, was fined €150,000 for not having a licence to sell the products.

Brenda Kirby, an enforcement officer with the Irish Medicines Board, told the court that an investigation into the Myth and Magic head shop in Athlone uncovered "Viagra-type" drugs which had been purchased from Harmony Products.
