Back to piano?

    I packed in the piano as a 7 year old. I couldn't read music but could play by ear, and in the middle of Fur Elise my teacher stopped me and asked me to point out where I was on the page. I had no idea and got a hard whack with a pencil across the knuckles. I ran out of her living room, out the front door and a mile home. Never went near her or a piano again.
    Of late I've been watching Youtube tutorials with the sheet music and can follow quite clearly, and to my surprise actually read the music. I've taken out old sheet music by my old piano and it seems to be not as difficult as I used to find it.
    Any suggestions where/how I should find a good teacher? I'm in Clare and pushing it at 53:o
